Title: mogul pilots pictures request
Post by: br549 on February 25, 2008, 08:45:15 PM
 Dear Bachmann, I have noticed in other forums people are eager to get a sneak peak at the new pilots for the Mogul you are offering.  Could you possibly post some pictures of them?  Pretty Please!!!! ;D

Have fun!

The new pilots -- are they going to look different than the current 2-6-0 pilots? Just curious.

Since the new pilots have operating couplers, the new pilots are going to have to look a little different, with the coupler being lower and smaller than the fake coupler on the current pilot.  But I was thinking about it, and it would be cool if there were a "cowcatcher" version, and footboard version in each package. 

I'm guessing the design is already set, and hopefully we'll see some samples soon.

i think one with an attachable  snow plow would be cool. winter can even hit had on them model railroads too. lol But once again i do not know if bachman is done with the pilots ideas but if they are here is just an idea for you.

Fifth... but hope the coupler height situation could be worked out.

From the pic in the new catalog, the pilot appears to be the same boiler-tube design as the original pilots.

Mr. Bachmann,

  Any photos of the new Mogul pilots, as well as the new frames. The wait is killing me, to the point I've spent weeks on one of my Connies doing a little modification, namely plow and beartrap..

 I have two Moguls and a bunch of rolling stock waiting for the new stuff... ::)
 
 And wouldn't it be neat if you cold get us a plow for our Moguls, Connies, et al! ;D ;D

Thanx,

Howard

Very, very nicely done. snowplow and beartrap cinder catcher really makes an impression.

Greetings all,

there is a very nice photo of the new pilots in the 2008 catolog, the new pilot looks like the old one except the coupler box has been moved down the front of the pilot and the boiler tubes have been extended above the coupler pocket to match the tubes on either side of the couple bax.

Andre :)
