Title: EZ Track
Post by: Whiterg on November 01, 2017, 10:51:50 AM
Does Bachmann have any intention of manufacturing either a 22" or 26" Radius Curve rerailer with wire track similar to the 18" track #44502 it already has?

There are rail joiners with wire leads available while you wait.

  Getting the factory joiners off is quite simple.

Nope, not always.  For anyone interested in facts, it would behoove them to check out the multitude of posts about this very subject on this very Board (but then again most never bother b4 asking a question, cause they might actually see it has been addressed 3 or 4 times, already.....)

...and the plug from your Bachmann controller (or a replacement plug from the parts store if you don't want to mess with your old plug)

If you use a replacement plug, unlike stereo connections that use the tip and ring, the wires for the controller plug go to the ring and sleeve (ground) contacts. Nothing goes to the tip connector. This is to prevent shorts when plugging into the controller.
