- Dec 12, 2000Hi Dale,
Man, I've struck the motherlode on this list. First photos and now roster
information. Thank you to everyone.
Now, for Dale in particular, does V&T Shops make anything that might help
me convert the Bachmann On30 Mogul to an earlier model? Eventually I'll
find a dead ringer for the Glenbrook but for now I'd be satisfied with new
domes, stack and cattle catcher.
