#370 Littlefield & New Paltz Railbus (On30)

Starting at: $75.00







Sized like a small bus built on a Ford Model TT truck chassis, the freelance Littlefield & New Paltz railbus is a great way to add local passenger service to your narrow gauge railroad.   Or .... add a trailing car to make a neat little work train.  (Trailer options are available in drop down menu below listing!)

The kit includes parts to transform your Bachmann HO scale 45-ton switcher into a great little railbus!  See your dealer for that locomotive and be sure to get the Forty-FIVE ton loco -- it's the one with the neat little side cranks as shown here.

Kit includes highly-detailed and crisply-molded resin parts for the full body assembly, including sides, ends, hood, radiator, roof, headlight, bell and steps.  Illustrated instructions show how to extend the deck of the 45-ton loco, so you'll end up with a pilot and coupler at each end. 

We've included a "big honkin' headlight" for the railbus, because we like that!  If you prefer a smaller headlight, you may want to look at HO loco headlights and save the detail part in the kit for one of your On30 critters.

We've included some trailing car options in the drop-down menu below.  Be sure to click the thumbnail photos below to see photos of the trailing car options and larger photos of the railbus.


  • Requires:  Chassis and deck from Bachmann HO 45-ton locomotive.  (Forty-FIVE ton with side-cranks!)
  • Includes bell, headlight and steps ... add extra details to suit your railroad!
  • Couplers for railbus:  Railbus will re-use couplers from the HO donor loco.
  • Couplers for trailing car:  You'll need a pair of Kadee #5 couplers.
  • Minimum radius:  Easily negotiates 15" radius without trailing car, may need 18" radius when hauling trailer due to rear overhang.
