Looking for a test track setup I saw at a train show once. The guy had a 2-10-2 bachmann on the stand & running in place. I'd like to find one of these things for displaying my stuff at shows & at home. Smiley

Thanks,
Bob

Bachmann & Aristocraft make rollers that are placed on top of the HO track.  They retail in the $50-60 range but are portable - nice to break in engines!!  Bachmann also makes a "dummy" set of rollers to be placed under wheels that do not need power.

Go to www.walthers.com - advanced search - item # 160-42901 and 160-42902 for the Bachmann and 614-6 for the Aristocraft ones.  I have a set of the Aristocrafts.  The Bachmann ones are a new release.

Dear All,
We have rollers with ball bearings for the moving drive wheels and non- moving "rollers" for tender wheels. They work great, and are less expensive than the other rollers on the market.
Have fun!
