im tring to convince my dad into getting a Bachmann j class 4-8-4 with sound converted into a CNR U4-a class Northern by the folks at esn model trains in Barrie, Ontario.
(www.esnmodeltrains.com)
he thinks it's not worth it to get a engine that works fine already converted inot something that might not work as well.
to the best of my understanding after the conversion the models are tested and all problems worked out. this is my favourite loco and I don't want to pay $3000+ for a brass model of it
if you have anything to say that could help me in my quest please feel free to say it! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Cool

Okay, Andy.  (Note capital "A").  I saw one for a "Bachmann Plus 4-8-4."  If he would like the IHC Vanderbilt tender, then he'd love the Spectrum 16V Vanderbilt since it already has the Bachmann 2 and 4 plug connectors.  Might knock a few bucks off the price, especially since they are readily available and don't cost very much.
Ask Roger Traviss what he knows about the company.
