The definition of “Quality” is conformance to requirements.

In your opening post you state;
Quote
Seems the stock speakers are junk....I have replaced both for the second time with factory speakers and they always sound really tinny with hardly any base and not very good volume along with the original warped defective fuel tank the houses the speakers as a chamber and the replacement was also bowed /warped down the middle. Iam sure this is not the only 2 it seems....Thanks for teaching me this lesson at my cost....

It appears to me your perception of quality differs from Bachmann’s.
You’re getting what you paid for.

If you feel you’re not getting the quality you desire, well that’s on you…hence my reply above.

Do as the Bachmann asks and contact the service department.
I’m sure Bachmann will be more than happy to send you another speaker and maybe a decoder, to make things right.

Good luck with your resolution.

P.S. No affiliation with Bachmann in anyway.

Bachmann’s niche is in entry level trains and related products, including decoders and speakers.
If you desire something more than that you will need to look elsewhere.

Check that the Universal is seated properly on both ends.
There is something going on there, it should not raise up even if the siderods are in a bind.

There is more than one way to skin the same cat, nobody is right and nobody is wrong.
Looking at the railhead from directly on top:
Some like to cut the rail perpendicular to the length of the rail (90° angle straight down).
I like to cut at a 45° angle, straight down (/).
I don’t fill the gap.
Just my preference YMMV.
But you don’t have to cut “straight down”, the angle top to bottom does not matter.
A gap is a gap.

Good luck

If your using the trains in North America, then no problems.
Your transformer takes care of that for you.
The power requirements remain the same across the board (globe).
It’s the mains supply that differs.

N is a international standard, exept GB.
Not sure what is trying to be conveyed here?
Power requirement?
Gauge?
Scale?

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.

I have used this method on about half dozen Bachmann Steam lokies and their tenders.
It works just as you see on the Youtube videos with both the white and gold inks.
Very quick and efficient.
It has become my method of choice.

Have not tried the ELO, so can't comment on which is a superior method/product.

Good luck

Hi ragman,

First, check both your wheelsets and the track to be sure everything is in gauge.
Then, put a straight edge over the frog in both the straight and diverging routes along the length of the top of the railhead.
Then do it again, this time crossing the width of the turnout over the frog and guard rails and wing rails.
Everything level?
It may be possible a wheel is dropping into the frog, check that too.
Get your eyes down low on it, and run slow and see what exactly is happening and where.

Good luck

Storage conditions make all the difference.

I don’t apply fresh lubrication without first removing all the old stuff.
My weapon of choice is CRC “QD Contact Cleaner” #02130
I blast it off using the straw.

If memory serves, Bachmann does not make a single straight section 1.875 in length.
They do however, make a .750 section and a 1.125 section both available in the Assorted Short Connector Sections pack p/n 44899.
