2071  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Value of Bachmann Train Sets on: August 28, 2007, 10:36:57 PM
Charles, If they are G or large Scale sets such as the Big Hauler I can probably get you some good info from my database on recent sales.   State the scale and the Bachmann Item number on the set box and I will see if I can help.

Sierra 28,

A check of my price database for the Royal Blue set shows that set was very common one of the most produced sets by Bachmann.   The EBay price ranges from 67.50 to $135 depending on condition.   The MSRP was $340 for the latest run, but average retail new was about $200.

The only older Snta Fe set with a caboose was the Thunderbolt Express last produced in 1992.   The MSRP new was $240, but the retail street price was about $145.   Recent ebay sales of the set have ranged between $46 and $56.   

Good luck with your claim.

Hi Wade,

That is interesting!!  I have both but they are exactly the same color.    Please send me a pic of the 1997 OSH in the different color along with the spread sheets!!!!! 

It is always interesting to find something unexpected!

 I haven't seen anything in my email from you, but if you could send a copy of the spreadsheets my way, I would appreciate it.

Sorry, but I did not make a copy or print a hard copy of your post.   As far as I know there is no way to access the old board's history.   

On the old board I savedlinks related to the History items, thinking that I could access them any time I needed them.  I never anticipated we would get a whole new board, and be locked out of the old history items.  Needless to say NONE of the links to the old board work anymore.   I wish I had made hard copies of many items.  On the new board when I see an item I am saving things I want as a texr file, rather than saving just then link.

Hard lesson learned!!!!    If I find a copy or a way to access your old post I will let you know!!!

Maybe it is time for Bachmann to enter the market for G scale Track starting with brass.   Bachamnn has a proven track record for producing high quality Loco's & rolling stock at very reasonable prices, why not do it with brass track for starters.  Surely Bachmann can beat the prices of USA & Aristo.   Bachmann has always needed some alternative to the steel indoor track, so why not go for it.

Dave, I have been off the board for awhile so sorry for the late reply.

The mustard colored combine is a one of a kind paint scheme found in the later run of the Ringmaster sets, and may be available in that color as a seperate item.

The coach and observation are both red in the EK Version as well as in the Bachmann Brothers version.

If you already have the red coach or observation, you will find many red versions of the combine on EBAY.    You could sell the mustard one and buy a red one!!

Hope this helps.!!

Julian to answer your battery question,  The loco batteries are located in ther smoke box.  You access the compartment from the inside of the cab by removing the backhead.  You will also need a fresh battery for the rc controller!!   Good luck and enjoy the gift!!!
2079  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: large scale couplers on: May 24, 2007, 11:17:23 PM
Mike,  Assuming you have reasonably decent track and have cleared any debris from the middle of the tracks, the easiest fix is paint them!!  Again I stand with JD on this issue, I spray paint my Bachmann Knuckle Couplers with the cheapest Wal-Mart or any discount store red oxide primer.  The added bite from the paint seems to do the trick.  They not only stay together better and save me all the work of the other fixes, but also look great in the rust like color of the red oxide paint.   I keep several complete trucks with the couplers painted and installed in stock.  When I get a new car I swap out the trucks and put the new ones in the paint shop til I get ari=ound to painting them.   Sometimes I also remove the wheels and paint the truck sideframes as well.  I get lots of complements on the cars I have done this to.  If your mine cars do not have metal wheelsets, add them to add weight to the cars.  I have watched a 45 tonner pull 16 of these cars on good track with no problems!!

Hope this helps a little.........

 Smiley  I too am happy to see this finally happen, I am having some problems accessing the diagrams as the drop downs do not seem to cover the underlying text leaving a double image look and I have trouble reading the drop downs.

Anyone else having problems?
2081  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Model flaws on: March 20, 2007, 06:44:18 PM
I am with Scot, on this one and have used it for the same reason on my kitbashes.  I don't worry about the color contrast, since I give my kit bashes a coat of primer before final painting anyway. 

Thanks for all the great responses, there are certainly a lot of great techniques out there and I love learning all the new tricks!!
2082  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Bach Man, Can you help me with my Annie? on: March 19, 2007, 07:54:31 PM

If it doesn't run well, and is one of the electric powered 4-6-0 locomotives you could send it to Bachmann for repair.  Give them a call and dicuss the problem with them.  Ther is a fee involved, as I recall $25 and you will have to pay to ship it to them, they will pay return shipping.   Repairs can take awhile, depending on the backlog of repairs, but they do a fantastic job!   I have done it and was very satisfied!!

Good luck
2083  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Just got a used Big Hauler Radio Controlled on: March 19, 2007, 07:02:13 PM
Bachmann did offer a circus set radio controlled, just like the one you have.  There several different sets, not a lot different, but there were both the 27 mgz and 49 mhz transmitters & receivers in the locomotives. this allows 2 train operation on the same track.  Bachmann RC locomotives are sold on EBAY every week.  the ones with road numbers ending in 7 are 27 mgz and those ending in 9 are 49 mgz.  They go for very reasonable prices.

Happy railroading!!
2084  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Prospector Train Set - Scale and Proportioning? on: March 12, 2007, 12:04:00 PM

Height is 5&1/2 inches from rail to top of roofwalk, 4&3/8 inch from the top of the roofwalk to the bottom of the frame, Width Eave to Eave is 4&3/8 inch and the length is 15&3/4 inches not including the couplers.  Hope it helps!
2085  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Need help guessing length of tank car on: March 10, 2007, 09:31:47 PM
