Thanks fer the interest in my Wazoo Island Rwy., and the nice
However it is NOT On30! The scale is
3/8" = 1" or 1/32nd proportion running on
HO standards track which works out to
approx. 20" gauge. Extra narrow gauge
if you will. On30 is 1/4" = 1', or 1/48
proportion. The equipment in this scale/
gauge is quite diminutive. I did use the
Bachman On30 Porter chassis for PUFF
the steam loco, and HUFF the gaz rig.
This makes them about 4 ton locos.
In On30, the Porters scale out to about
7 ton locos. I use hand-laid code 83 rail,
and have 10" radius curves.
And yes, the car is really 4 1/2 ft. x 8 ft.!
I believe the fotos show a person (Figger)
standing by the car which should give you
some idea of the size! Very little is available in this scale/gauge, so
want anything, be prepared to build, build,
Hope this helped answer some of your questions.
