Is this HO scale? I bought a complete N scale Coaster from Athearn a few years back to use on my dad's layout. Great looking equipment!

Hey, where do you get your coaches, or do you make them your self. Because I love the fabulous work that you put into those coaches. I am looking for metro-link coaches to buy myself actually in HO scale.

I have a 4-car TRE set by Athearn plus the F49PHI.  I have kept them stock, but had to superglue the chassis to the base because they kept falling off.

 

They are gorgeous sets and since they were sold without a copyright agreement, they've become quite rare and VERY expensive in the original livery for most of the various roads that Athearn modeled.

 

I am having issues with my F49PHI - it can't navigate around 11" curves without derailing.  Are you having any issues?  How can I fix this?

 

I used to do some decal'ling on HO with some pretty good results.  If I can find some more Bi-Level coaches for cheap that don't have a livery worth preserving (ie: GO Transit... LOL), then I may dabble...
