31  Discussion Boards / N / Re: Is there a new Class J 4-8-4 with dcc and sound forthcoming? on: April 30, 2017, 07:05:15 PM
Last time these were run was in í06, eleven years ago.
They are still readily available from many shops.

http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Bachmann-N-Class-J-4-8-4-NW-p/bac-82153.htm
And you can get 10% off that using the 10BACHMANN code during checkout.

Bachmann flooded the market, so I really donít see a big demand yet for another run as long as they are still on the shelf.
Most who want sound have added it by now.

I think Bachmann might make more money off a second run of the heavy Mountain, which demands top dollar on the secondary market.
Or another body (heavy) on the existing Pacific mechanism.
The wheelbase and the driver size are close enough.

Öbut who knows what Bachmann will doÖ

Hi lamarager,

Are you well versed in the use of the meter?
If not, not to worry.
We were all newbies once,

When you attempt to measure (voltage?), what does the display show?

Where are you placing the probes?

Parallel or Series?

All good advice, from the previous posters

Continuity and Voltage are two very different things.

Measuring with calipers I get .318 in. against the flange.
35  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: What does the # mean on: April 27, 2017, 10:32:31 PM
In N scale, the number you posted would be the part number.
Other numbers include the degrees curvature, the radius, and the patent number(s).
I donít see any date code or machine number, but I have very little EZ track to look at.
The example I gave was for a 19r 15į NS N Scale curve which has 3 patent numbers.

Not sure how safe it is to assume that HO track would be the same.
YMMV

Bachmann doesnít seem to be concerned as long we are talking purchasing Bachmann products from an authorized Bachmann distributor/vendor.
No toes have been stepped on.

Yardy will correct me if I'm wrong.

Have you a better price?
38  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Turnout on: April 19, 2017, 08:49:36 PM
Have you checked the gauge of the wheels?
And the gauge of the track?.

Which wheels derail?
Pony truck, or Drivers?

Look at the wheels on the turnout, exactly where does the derailment happen?
Points?, Frogs?. Somewhere else?

So no, I'm not not an "out of the box" modeller, never have been, even as a teen and never will be.  Smiley

You only need to convince yourself.

A simple strip and repaint of two colors would seem to me to be much easier than the placement of grab holes and MU hoses which IMO require a much more precise application (placement).
The paint could be easily spray bombed.
The yellow stripe decal hides the edge (leak) from the maroon to the grey.
Can you tape a straight line?
Hold a decal parallel?
Just as well, if you canít,
Buy RTR, no fault there.

We are all getting older.
Vision is but one thing that doesnít work as new.

Thanks,
I have about 20 of those ore cars for a someday train painted and decaled into a fictional road.
Have not yet decided which way Iím going with the trucks/wheels sets and couplers.

like CPR's maroon and grey with yellow striping is a major task.

So you see, I'm not an "out of the box" modeller.  Far from it.

Looks like you are now if this statement is correct;

Quite beyond the tasks of my eyesight.

Maroon and grey paint with a yellow decal stripe does not look difficultÖ but if you canít see itÖ
You have become an out of the box modeler.

 It's the reason your looking for a RTR shell.

Looks good RGW!
Nice paint and decals on that MT caboose.
What couplers are you using between the Atlas ore cars, or are you using drawbars?
Canít tell from the vid.

will a bachmann 2-8-0 N scale run on 8.5 radius track?

I have never tried it with mine, but I would think not.

Try it and let us know.
