(a big list of links!)

welcome to the On2 On30 On3  modelers resource page



  
 
 
 

This page is the result of a quest..
a quest to find detail parts for some On2 locomotive projects I want to build.
who has parts? is there a "list of links" anywhere?
I have seen references to various products and manufacturers scattered in various places and forums around the internet, and I started my own collection of webpage bookmarks, just by bookmarking relevant webpages.. but I never saw a really comprehensive link list..so I started my own! then I thought..why not share it?

so here it is.. 

I would like this list to eventually contain *everything* that exists to help people build On2-On30-On3 models! Especially for scratchbuilding and kitbashing purposes.
A place that O-scale narrow gaugers can go to find whatever they might be looking for.

A problem (in my opinion) is that often the parts you want DO exist..but you just cant find them!
and small "niche" manufacturers are offering products people want, but many of the potential customers dont know the product exists! 

I was going to divide things up by scale, On2, On3 and On30..but thats really pointless,
because items from all three scales can often be used in any of the others, (with modifications),
and things such as buildings and figures are simply "O scale" and can also be used in all three scale/gauge combinations.

Im not going to list dealers, (there are lots of them)..just manufacturers.
so this list wont necessarily tell you where to buy something, its purpose is more to show what exists to buy in the first place!

enjoy!
and if you have any comments, corrections or additions to this list, please email me.

thanks,
Scot
 
 
 


The majority of the O-scale narrow gauge market, On3 and On30, is "Colorado 3-foot gauge" modeling, with a few smaller niches, including a small (but growing!) Maine 2-footer contingent,  some dedicated East Broad Top On3 and On30 modelers, and the industrial/critter modelers.

For you Maine, EBT and Critter fans, I will indicate manufacurers who have items matching your interests with a Maine, EBT or Critter marker. (but also remember, lots of items that might be geared toward "colorado" can be easily adapted to Maine, EBT and Critter modeling! such as structures, and even rolling stock...and of course detail parts can apply to all scales and prototypes.)

Probably *every* link on this list has something for you Colorado guys! ;)
so I wont bother with a Colorado marker, it would be redundant, since just about 
every link would need one! ;)

Hint for Maine On2 and On30 modelers..scroll all the way to the bottom! ;)
