Wanted HOn3 70 ton conversion
« on: July 24, 2013, 11:35:17 AM »
I last asked a year ago, then got sidetracked. I have a MINT Bachman Spectrum Shay or a nicely done MDC 2-8-0 done up as EBT #19 to offer for trade.

I have one in progress at the moment and have completed another a year ago i think. It would be expensive for me to trade with you due to postage and such from Australia.
How ever the conversion is fairly easy to complete and doesnt require much skill if you take your time and use the right tools. You can get the loco for under $50 and i think the conversion wheels were under $20. Im sure you could tackle it yourself and i would be happy to help guide you through it if you choose this path. Have you read the article about the conversion?

You can also buy replacement truck for about $30 so if you go wrong its not hard to find part to correct it.
