HO Jordan Mack railbus
Posted by artguy on Friday, November 01, 2013 7:00 PM

I just bought an HO Jordan 1922 Mack railbus. Is there anyone out there who knows how to power it? A description on how to do this would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!  -artguy

Gidday, Welcome to the forum.

I don't think he has done a Jordon rail bus but Darth Santa Fe has carried out some interesting, to say the least, repowers.

There are more but this might just give you a few ideas.

Have Fun , Cheers, the Bear.

That's OK Bear, I managed to buy a brand new BRASS one from "Caboose Hobbies" for $150.00! It's powered, too! I'm going to have it professionally painted green with a silver/gray roof. It will look EXACTLY like the one they ran on the "Chestnut Ridge Railway" at the New Jersey Zinc Mine in Palmerton, Pennsylvania. Thanks for trying to help me out, though Bear!  -artguy

I know this thread is old, but wanted to know how your railbus turned out. I would love to see some pictures!
