Need info on converting “O” Gauge model R.R. rolling stock to HOn3 Scale?

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Question by DAVID C: Need info on converting “O” Gauge model R.R. rolling stock to HOn3 Scale?
What is required to convert from “O” scale to HOn3 scale for my model railroad rolling stock? I know the trucks will be required but are other items ; couplers, electric pick-ups for lighting, etc. also required? Please help as I am trying to convert my collection for a Christmas village display that is presently HO Gauge and prefer not to change trackage. Also need info on where to obtain these items.

Answer by westpac67
To convert O scale to HOn30, as you mentioned you do need HO scale trucks. Unless there is a clearance problem above the track due to the shorter [height-wise] trucks, the couplers should be OK. As for the electrical pick-up, that depends a little bit on whether you are converting FROM 2-rail or 3-rail track. Either way, you need to get HO trucks with METAL wheels, preferably those designed for lighted HO cars like passenger cars or cabooses. Just wire them up per the instructions that should come with them.
I would recommend converting just two cars at first, and checking them on the track you will be using to make sure the cars will have clearance between them for the HO curves. At that point, you will know if you must modify/change the couplers or coupler mountings.
The best source for the parts [and additional tips/hints] would be a hobby shop that carries model railroad supplies AND parts. If you do not have one locally, then you might have to go to the Internet to find one.

Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?

Question by : Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?
I notice that in arguments especially in forums such as this one and armchair general forums,whenever people are in an argument one side will begin to search at the other user.

Here is one example example here is one between user Antwoin Dodson and Sailor Saturn.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AlgdqQaB75PUkcGR37z1mWQjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20110102111908AAv3tpq

‘Antoine Dodsn:Jesus Christ.
Yes, list three bad missions and assume they fail at the rest of them. Notice how your only evidence is over 40 years old? Isn’t that something to think about.
Sailor Saturn:These are just 3 examples. I could post more but thats not the point of this question.What Iam asking is why Special forces don’t perform well in missions that conventional infantry such as USMC,Army Airborne, and even regular army infantry could do with such excellent performance such as large scale amphibious assaults or defending static positions!

Antoine Dodson then starts looking at Sailor Saturn’s user profile and begins using off topic info that had nothing to do with the thread against Sailor Saturn.

Antoine Dodson:Your profile explains everything. Male who loves Sailor Moon. I would love to see you in the military.

Edit:

Oh wait, you READ it. So you read about three failed missions and come on here saying they perform poorly. Go back to jerking it to Dragon Ball Z and sailor moon.

Edit:

Oh go ahead and copy and paste all your evidence kiddo. All you are doing is showing you are just an anime know it all who thinks he is so smart and that the US SOF/SF are failures. When was the last time you performed in combat?

PS: Khe Sanh was a clusterfuvk. No amount of training would have prevented it or those deaths. You are listing battles that were brutal. Stop insinuating that the SOF/SF can’t do their job.

Here is another example between Gobar G and 2th 4rd.Here is what happened.
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ArL9ChHzpTyDs.IQp2xPFjQjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20100208210640AAXM6lT
Gobar G-I notice that in martial arts universally is the importance of the meaning of discipline and training oneself up to the point Discipline is Permanently Second Nature to you and that you are a very well disciplined person..And I also notice this applies to ALL MARTIAL ARTS REGARDLESS of origins be it French,Brazilian,Japanese,Russian and Korean and regardless of style be it Sambo,Savate,Kung Fu,or Eskrima.

So what is the meaning of Discipline in martial arts?What is its purpose in martial arts?Why do all martial arts in the world EMPHASIZE DISCIPLINE FIRST ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE?

2th4rd all of a sudden enters the thread and bashing Gobar G with off topic things.

G scale model trains info

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

G Scale Model Trains   Once model train hobbyists refer to large-scale model trains, part of the scales grouped into the large-scale trains is the G scale.  Compaired to other types of model trains, its size is considerably largeror.  In reality it is the biggest of the common scales that model train hobbyists deal with.  G scale model trains are customarily 1:22 to the authentic size. 

That resources that G scale model trains are one twenty-second of the size of the real train prototype. Other types of model trains occur in decrease ratios.  The O magnitude which is also considered part of the larger-scale trains is simply 1:48 to the genuine size which is roughly partially the size of the G scale model trains.  The G scale model train has a span if about 26.7 inches and a height of around 6.0 inches in comparison to the O scale model trains which bear a length of almost 16.1 inches and a height of almost 3.6 inches.  The G scale model train was pioneered by Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerk, a German company often referred to as Lehmann Gross Bahn (LGB) or “Lehmann Big Train” in English.  The company was founded in 1881 and had a USA side of the company called LGB of America.   

]]>

 G scale model trains are larger and are also commonly referred to as Garden Railroading hence the mutual exploitation of phrase G Scale.  The letter “G” is moreover brief for the German word gro which factually means “big” which coincides with its German history.  Solely like other large-scale trains, G scale model trains want run on No. 1 gauge track.  The No. 1 gauge track is 45 mm sandwiched between either rail.  

It is their durability with the purpose of makes them the ideal array to be used in the garden or the outdoors.  G scale tracks are as a rule made of brass.  They require almost no maintenance from the possessor.  The single affair that these large train lovers need to do is to present the track a single wipe of clean cloth and its set for operations as soon as again. 

The G scale model trains may possibly be used for indoor purposed as well depending on the generate up of the model train.   The most excellent G scale manufacturers in the United States are Aristocraft and Bachmann.
Public adore the benefits of a G scale model train for the reason that of its durability.  Parents can feel confident that their kids will be able to play with it and bear a toy like this that will keep on for many years to happen. 

G Scale model trains are a splendid hobby for parents and children to take pleasure in collectively as well.  Parents can feel sure that their children can operate these trains although tiny children possibly will lack the tenderness it takes to hold train scales of a smaller size like the N scale which is no more than more or less 4.8 inches in length and roughly speaking 1.1 inches in height.    

 With the amount of period that model trains bear been around, train makers bear given us different size trains for each purpose.  This includes the G scale model trains.
