Any production sample photos of the new 2-6-0's that are supposed to release in December?  I'm particularly interested in the Grizzly Flats Emma Nevada!  Smiley

Well... I was hoping to see the 2-6-0 before the end of this year, but I just checked Walthers site and it's showing April of 2016. I hope Walthers is wrong... is it?

I need a new demo loco so these will be of interest.
My only wish is they have at least one modernised version.  Road name does not matter.
As nice as the old timers are, they do not interest me at all.

Does anyone have a picture of this upcoming beast ?

Disregard that - just seen it on Train World Online - it's the old Mogul re-done, shame because I was hoping for something new  Cry 

But what I do find a bit odd, is that there is no mention of metal gears ?  So the age-old problem will still exist - stripped gears, and for us that are not 100% adept at dismantling valve-gear and wheelsets (especially on the Conso !!!) another useless loco.

The 2-6-0s will have metal gears and upgraded electronics. They will be shipping in the Spring.

Wonderful news, thanks Smiley  Is there any chance of the Conso being re-done with metal gears - or maybe just the chassis ?  I have two that are completely redundant (they look great, but that's about it  Grin )

No plans to reissue the consolidation at this time. Replacement gears (metal) are available from the service department from time to time.

Don,

 The repair is not as tough as you think.  Put it on a white surface or cloth. Carefully remove the parts and photograph each step.  As you go put the parts in plastic bags marking what they are and numbering them.  The procedure is basically the same as the 2-6-0, but your Connie's do have sprung axles, and you will have to be careful not to lose the springs.  The springs can be a pain to get back in, but doing it while you are fresh will usual;ly do the trick.
Reinstall the parts in reverse order and you should be good to go.  It is still a great Loco and a great runner with new gears installed. 

Since they usually have the parts for repair, you may wish to send them in for warranty repair,  Call service to check before send them in to be sure they can do the work.
