Thanks Jon.  But I am not interested in a Walthers.  My needs can easily be met with the Bachmann if I can over come this problem.

yup, that is possible, but it is not what I had in mind when I purchased the t.t.   It is disappointing that it is not reliable.  I can't imagine it was designed with that in mind.

I have been using the Bachmann turntable for a couple of weeks.  Very often the ends of the platform do not correctly line up with the tracks for the stalls.  It's only misaligned by a millimeter or so, but this is enough to interfere with the engine's smooth transition to/from the platform.   Is there any fix for this?  Do I return the t.t.   (that would be a real pain!!!)  Thanks for your thoughts and info.

Did some searching on youtube and a number of people have demonstrated success for letter removal from Athearn engines by using MICROSOL.  Has anyone tried this with Bachmann steams with success?  Thank you.

Hi Jonathan,
    Are you sure the model number that you give for the ECO-100 is correct?  I have been doing a search and I come up with similar numbers, but not the exact same one.   Thank you.

Johnathan,
   Thank you for a nicely detailed answer.  It gives me info that I can look and find.   Thanks again.

I have just been give a Bachmann 4-6-0 DCC ready, and would like to put a sound decoder in it along with a speaker.   Can someone make recommendations since I know nothing of DCC?   Will it be difficult to install the sound decoder and speaker?    Thanks.

Has anyone used the Bachmann TT with code 83 track.   I understand the bridge is code 100 and it is not possible to change the rail size.  Adjustments would need to be made where the code 83 meets the code 100.   Any comments?    Thanks.

Might give the added weight a try.   How did you remove the smoke box front.   I don't want to harm the paint or the plastic.
    Thanks.

hummmmmm.....some one must own one of these.   Would appreciate an answer for an unmodified engine.   Thank you.

Might some one give me an estimate of the number of freight cars that the light Bachmann Mikado should be able to pull?  I understand that "mileage" may vary with type and care of the cars.
   Thanks.

15  Discussion Boards / HO / sound in a consolidation? on: September 27, 2017, 10:24:45 AM
Bachmann's consolidations look nice.   I heard they run ok.   But sound is missing.   After being in the hobby in Large scale for a loooong time, I have had to switch scales.  How much work would it take to get a sound module in a recent Bachmann consolidation?
  Thanks.
