Just a quick update. After pulling the foam from the old HO area, I made an unexpected discovery. Iit had been laid directly over old "liquid water' lakes, old plaster cloth, and other odds & ends from the original layout construction, creating all kinds of 'humps & bumps'. So I'll be spending the next week or so cleaning that mess off so the new deck will lay flat, instead of starting on the new deck.

More pics when I can actually start laying the new deck and foam.

The gp 38 is of the latest tooling like the sd40-2. They share the same cab and window glazing. The gp 40 and 50 are 1970's tooling with a couple improvements to the gp 40 along the way . The gp 40 looks like old Atlas Roco shell with a few changes ,or upgrades since acquired by Bachmann. That was in the area of how the shell mounted to the frame .Nothing more as in detail.Even less they cut the molded grab irons off and left it without any for the latest and greatest new run of them for the clean look so you can add your own.

I recently picked a couple of Bachmann GP38-2s and they are very nice locomotives, too bad the Bachmann GP40 and GP50 are not up to the same standard.

I would like to see the tar wagon come back. Maybe not as a troublesome truck, but it will surprise if they did.

I do like the like spiteful brake van. I wonder if it will a little out of place with the other ones since they don't have the NW decals?

I'll still looking to buy troublesome truck 5 but I can't anyone selling one. It would be nice to have salt wagon.

Every switch I ever bought from Bachmann has an electric actuation switch, so yours should have them too.

Donít know why everyone feels the need to thow switches electrically, even when they are right in front of you.  Even the real railroads donít do that.  I donít buy those track switches anymore, but the first thing I did was cut off the wire and throw the electrical switch away.  And install s switch stand, like the prototype.

China owns the company and does not have the rite to print this ,or will not . How does the real answer sound. Must be made and printed in the USA to have the Rite to do so for free.Have to draw the line in the sand somewhere. Maybe they should print some decals up in the USA and have someone in the USA put them in the box in the USA to be sold in the USA only.

They have produced the cars you ask about but it's been a few years.  In another post, I asked about production of passenger cars.  The reply from WBB was that they're not producing them "at this time".  I would look online at Mario's Trains and Trainworld else a generic search.  That's really your only hope right now.

If you have issues with Soundtraxx you should take them up directly with Soundtraxx, not bachmann.  I myself find Soundtraxx as a company to be very approachable, responsive and reliable.  If you advised them of inconsistencies in on line manuals there is no doubt in my mind that they would be quickly taken care of.

I suspect that if errors persist in on line sound value manuals, itís because the majority of sound value users donít become involved with cv manipulation because itís either too hard for them or arenít aware of the manipulation capabilities of the paltry few cvís that are there.

I knew permission was needed, but since Amtrak was given permission to use it on that loco, I don't understand why permission would be denied for an accurate model of that specific loco. Like I said, strange.

Not major ,but it is still there . Some of the older configuration variable listings for the Bachmann sound value .If you do a search it will pull up the old listings that include  a compressor default as a sound function and even has a default value of 100. This can be interpenetrated as a auto function since it is on Tsumani that they refer technical data from. It took many moons for them to correct it. There are many other cv's that are there ,but they do not list ,or the listing is flat out incorrect. Some have start up and shut down sequences along with the dynamic brake sound and rpm notching effect and some do not. If they do not have these ,why do not we get something else to replace them like a  different auto effect like brakes or a compressor. Not much deep though except getting the prime move correct per application. So if they went that far why cannot they take the next step to give us the sound decoders full potential instead of misprints and short cut incomplete sound and the same type of service when prompted ?They expect us to upgrade with this kind of bait and switch? This is why ESU is thriving!
