Bachmann army stuff coming in On30!

I'm going to get one of these Baldwins for sure! https://resources.bachmanntrains.com/2019nmraslc/html5/index.html 

Darn shame they’re doing the post-WW1 paint job as OD green as they weren’t painted like that. They were black with those markings.

And notice the shorty Army cars. Man how I wish they’d make the standard length cars with those markings, as I’d probably buy a few of those. I have no need for shorty cars. But then again, I already made my own Army boxcars, and don't need more.

The OD green boxcars look odd as cars didn’t usually come in OD green until the 1950s. I'll be getting the 2-6-2T as black undec and adding my own Army markings when I'm able to buy one...

I bashed one in HOn30 to make it look more American, but sold it before I finished. I have seen one photo of a real one with a wood cab that looked good.

Also notice Bachmann didn't make a new chassis for these. It is the chassis for their HO scale 0-6-0T. The driver should be evenly spaced and have valve gear.

They need to do some figures to go along with those trench engines.
