Dang!  Why is it so QUIET out there? 

Seems that everyone is maintaining radio silence, but there has to be some HOn3 activity out there, somewhere in the distance...

@Wild Bill 4620

Found this:  "Sam Bass sends a photo of one of several Tichy ore cars he modified for use on his HO narrow gauge Eureka Hill Railroad.  He changed out the Queen Posts and truss rods and moved the brake gear under the B end slope sheet. The cars ride on Bitter Creek Models T-94 Full Diamond Archbar HOn3 trucks."

I also saw a lot of hits on Google using 'Tichy 22' ore cars hon3'. 

Also, you might be able to get away with using Blackstone HOn3 trucks, depending on availability.  Several online shops for these, here's one I use that is very reliable:  http://store.sbs4dcc.com/search.aspx?find=blackstone+trucks

Now to grab some time to paint the track, and start with scenery and buildings.  Life gets in the way too often!

My first module, if you can call it that (8" x 18") has track laid.  Peco HOn3 code 70 is interesting - tiny, TINY spikes that lose the rail if you breathe wrong.  That said, it's down and I'm waiting for the glue to dry.  Then some ops, placeholders for structures at the moment.  Second module, another 8" x 18", will be started soon.

Costs have risen, the demographics have changed.  Kind of like amateur radio.  Blackstone was kicking it with their line of HOn3 locos and rolling stock, but they have hit a block with the Chinese supplier debacle (same as many other manufacturers).  I'm in the process of building an HOn3 switching layout, 2 to 3 modules.  Peco HOn3 track, NCE DCC.
