Larry, those are the trucks that came on the On30 car.

As I recollect they snap into the chassis.

I think Bachmann uses screws to attach the trucks now; replacement trucks I have on hand are screwed into a chassis.

I checked the trucks I have and they have a post that comes up through the chassis and a screw from the top holds them on.

While recovering from health issues, and with work on the new Charles Fish Head Glue Co. layout on hold,
I thought I would share some things on my project list. 

Here is the beginning of a small string of ore cars, based on Bachmann ore cars. 
I've removed the small details and painted with "Flat Gull Gray" paint by Model Master. 
I have four of the little cars as of now, but hope to find more at a train show. 

Thanks for looking,

regards, Dave L.

Dave, get well soon so you can enjoy what makes you happy - Gn15.

The Bachmann cars will make into a fine train.

Thanks, Larry.

One of the great things about Gn15 is the adaptability of inexpensive HO equipment.

I find cheap, used HO stuff at train shows to use in my projects.

Regards, Dave L.

I am always looking for bits and pieces to use with my Gn15 models. 
Any used up piece of equipment like old phones, small appliances, and electronic stuff,
when taken apart, will yield all sorts of useful little bits. 

A case in point was the neat "plumbing" parts for a future factory procured after my visit to the hospital. 
The nurses were amused with my request to keep all the IV parts,
but they will be part of the detail in my glue factory. 

Keep looking for useful stuff! 

Regards, Dave L.

I save every little bit of "detail" I find.
Be it plastic, wood or something else.

Also, check out hardware stores and other unlikely venues,
never know what might catch your eye.

A while ago I noticed a small plastic bonsai tree at a local garden center. 
A quick check on Amazon found this one for a whopping $1.34 plus $2.00 shipping. 
I think with a little work and gluing some scenic material on the leaves I'll have a nice tree for the layout.

Anytime someone is repurposing something from somewhere else you get my attention.
And of course the less money spent the better.

I like your HO ore car rebuilds.
I am planning something similar with some old Tyco cars, just have to find them cheap enough.

The tree should look great with added scenics for leaves.
