P utting larger trains in a smaller space is the concept behind Bachmann 's three brand new On30 tra i n sets. Offered i n the Silver Series'" l i ne, these narrow gauge sets run on H O track (per prototype ! ) and are accurate passenger tra i n reproductions in 1 14" s ca l e . This is the /irsl time J /4 " scale models are available at such an ql ordable price. f

C ollectively, each set's locomotive, combine, coach and observation car have earned four N M R A Conformance Warrants through c learance under the boil er, a preci s i on 5 p ole skew-wound can motor ( w i th hardened carbon brushes), numerous metal detai l parts ( i ncluding the headlight mount), a finescale p i l ot, and sprung center axle for superior track i ng performance and electrical pickup. In addition, the short-coupled tender f eatures a hand-tooled coal load, and the ( Warrants 98-69, 98-70, 98-7 1 and 98-72, respectively ) . The locomotive features a completely hidden drive train, see

Jackson & S harp narrow gauge passenger cars a l l feature removable roofs and ful l , painted interi ors with l ighting. The early buzz on these sets has started us p l a n n i ng for the future of On30. I n 1 999, look for new set roadnames, separate sale motive power, separate sale coaches and four styles of fre ight cars. Sound exciting? You bet it is. I t 's Ready, Set, Go for On30.
