  • Regauging the Bachmann Forney to On2

    So, has anyone tried this yet? I haven't had a real close look at mine yet, but I suspect it would be easier to regauge to On3 than On2. There's a fellow bashing a Bachmann 2-8-0 into an On2 version of SR&RL 2-6-2 #23 here: http://gold.mylargescale.com/Scottyc...L23/index.html which looks like a pretty involved project.

    Any thoughts or ideas on a Forney On2 conversion?

    Cody,

    There's a couple of people attempting it on the Yahoo On2 list. I'm taking the easy way out and sticking with On30.

        Darn it, Tom. If you hadn't moved away we could make it a project with monthly work nights like the famous resin kit project.

        I don't know. I keep hoping someone like NWSL will come out with a regauging kit for the forney and then...wow!

          Heck Jeff...resin kit nights are well....resin kit nights!...or maybe Kit-O-Mat nights!

          I'd be happy to send my forneys off to a pro for regauging....tom (95 and counting)

            I think the easiest way to regauge a B-Mann Forney would be to model in 1:38. Put on a new cab and you're there.
