HO scale gas/electric railcar or "doodle bug".
-- This one is a kit-bash between a Bachmann street car and
a Roundhouse (aka Model Die Casting) combine.
-- Very simular to one written up in Railroad Model Craftsman about a year ago.

HO scale boxcab switcher.
-- A kit-bash between a Bachmann 3 axle diesel switcher and an Athearn steel caboose.

On30 switcher
-- Running gear from the same type Bachmann 3 axle diesel switcher as the boxcab.
-- The superstructure is scratch-built.

Built by Bruce Vogel.


  All 3 projects are easy conversions of HO mechanisms that are relatively cheap to start with and good running without any major modifications.
