Yup. I remember reading that "Bear."   Thank you.  It is frustrating that it takes so long to have a new engine repair/replaced, however.   Will send it back on Monday.

Huh?Huh?….. I just read a reply from someone about returning the engine to TRAINWORLD...and I left to go to another room...and when I returned and before I could respond, it is no longer there!

 Anyway...I have several Bachmann engines and a couple of BLI engines.   With both manufactures, I  have had to return engines to the manufactures.  This is a bit discouraging having returned to HO scale just a year ago.  I moved and had to go to the smaller scale from Large Scale.   Of course all my Large Scale engines were Bachmann products, but they did not have the DCC technology.  Most operated properly when first used.   Is DCC this unreliable....or am I that careless in my use of a delicate product??
thanks for the comments.

Two white plugs....the head light is dim and yellow.   I think this is a new model just released.   I obtained it from Trainworld which list the item as a new release.

Thanks Trainman…..no luck.   I even stood on my left foot, patted my tummy in a counterclockwise motion as I rocked the engine.   Not successful.  I guess it goes back Monday.  Removing that plug in the new consolidation is a tricky proposition.   ugh.

ok....thanks...I will give it a try again...and remove the plug.   after resetting the cv8, I did remove the engine from the track entirely and replace it....but maybe the rocking thing upsets a few electrons somewhere... Wink   Anything is worth a try....if it goes out, they will have it for 6 weeks.   Cry

Just got the new sound value consolidation.   After a few minutes of run time, when I placed it in reverse, it immediately went to the fastest speed though the control was set at zero and went off the track.  Now it no longer responds to the address of 3 so I tried resetting cv 8 to 8 on the main.    But no results.   The forward direction has no response to the controller and the reverse direction has an extreme high rate of chuff...but the engine does NOT move or respond other than the whistle, light, and bell.   Any suggestions before it is returned to Bachmann on Monday.   Thanks.

I have installed the turntable on my layout and after much breaking in, tracks are starting to line up a bit....at least it is usable.
  I would like to install the handrails on the deck itself.  But it comes with tiny little plugs that fill the holes where the handrails are to be mounted.  I have tried prying them out with a hobby knife and pulling on them with needle nose pliers.  But nothing seems to grasp them.  What is the correct method to remove the plugs that are preventing me from removing the supplied handrails.    Thanks.

I have been looking forward to this announcement.  Hope it performs as well as the previous "value" engines.   Does anyone have an educated guess as when it might arrive in stores?....Thanks.
12  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: bachmann turntable/roundhouse on: April 16, 2018, 08:33:06 AM
Yes, I knew about that package.   But I already have the electric turntable.   I just need a roundhouse.   I don't think it is available separately is it?
   Thanks.
13  Discussion Boards / HO / bachmann turntable/roundhouse on: April 15, 2018, 07:09:31 PM
Is there a round house available the would be easily modified to pair with the Bachmann turntable.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Yup. that is what I meant gene
15  Discussion Boards / HO / dcc on board vs. sound value on: March 24, 2018, 01:10:25 PM
  Just purchased a dcc on board Bachmann Consolidation.   Beautiful looking engine; but compared to the Sound Value engines that I have, it does not run as "nicely"...what ever that means.   The NCE throttle must be cracked quite a bit higher to start her moving and then the performance is not as smooth when it first starts to move.  I have been running her for several days, and once the first couple of days have past, there has been no real change in the performance.   I was hoping to add a speaker and sound decoder to the engine, since the sound value engine are really fine runners.   Will a different decoder change the performance or is the performance the way the engine just is?   Thanks for the insights.
