Bachmann On30 2tr Shay conversion
The Bachmann On30 Shay is available in the US at bewilderingly varying prices. I bought two at various dates from Micro-Mark at the stunningly low price of $89.95 each. Even with transatlantic shipping costssadded to it the model is stil very affordable. Moreover it offers an excellent platform for conversion projects. As no two Shays were alike, your fantasy about how it could have looked can flow freely.
I will keep one Shay in its original state and I bought a second one for conversion. I have not decided yet in which conversion howevr. There are several options.
