|Here we see Barry's two pieces of "modern" power. #4 is a modified Bachmann gas/mechanical unit. #7 features a kit-built body on the mechanism of a Bachmann HO 44-ton loco.|

My friend Barry Storey stopped by recently to check out the W & Q module. It seems that Barry's collection of G, O standard gauge, HO, N, and Z models has recently been supplemented with a group of On30 pieces. We were able to pose some of these units in the yard at Quebec Junction. Barry kit bashed and detailed the internal combustion power himself; the steamers came from the Bruce Peachey collection when Bruce was in the process of retiring his On30 layout.
|We caught a close-up of #4 near the Quebec Junction station.|
|A pair of these 18' Bachmann boxcars showed up with the locomotives - they probably carried enough spare parts to ensure the safe return of the units to home rails!|
|This Climax is another Bachmann model.|
|Steamer #67 is a modified Bachmann Forney with an added tender.|
