Vic, You are right about the Sculpty figures, they are definitly cheap to make.  My problem is that I have absolutely no knack for making them.  One of my club   members who has a little talent compared to me, has made a whole set of custom circus figures that look really great!!!
2088  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Industrial 2-6-0 on: February 26, 2007, 01:13:43 PM
There are several of these om Ebay right now, they are selling for #89 to $100, or at least have the last few I saw sold.

Great Idea David!!

At $5 or 6 bucks per figure it is very expensive to fill a passenger car,  It is even worse whan you have to cut these expensive figures up just to get them to fit in a seat!!! Sad

Jerry,

I definitely like that idea Cool, because I still use track power and have that kind of system to recharge my sound system.  It is built into the sound card so I wouldn't know how to replicate it, but it is definitely something that could be done.

Keep you eyes peeled on Ebay for these items.  I can tell you that over the last seven months Each of the above items has been offered on EBay at least once, Except for the new Finescale 2 Bay Hopper.

Good luck finding something EBT to pull your cars!!

I agree with Matt and much prefer the battery powered lighting.   I was looking over the track powered cars and noticed that they come with metal handrails while the battery powered cars have the old plastic handrails. 

I would love to see the metal handrails and battery powered lighting become the standard. 
2093  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Different Road Numbers on: February 18, 2007, 11:08:40 AM
Ny vote goes to doing runs of 4 different numers, and all reruns of the same item in four different numbers. 

I believe it would be a good business decision and increase sales!
2094  Discussion Boards / Large / Can you post the item numbers for the new;y announced items on: February 14, 2007, 03:55:29 PM
Please.  Would definitely appreciate it!
2095  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Rail Truck Questions & fix on: February 14, 2007, 03:51:24 PM
Thanks TOC fior reposting this one, I will get to work on it!
2096  Discussion Boards / Large / Rail Truck Questions & fix on: February 13, 2007, 10:19:42 PM
TOC and others

Just dug out my rail truck to put it in service and remembered that there were some gear box issues and a fix posted by TOC (I think) on the old board.

Question one:  Do all rail trucks have this problem?

two  If all do not have this problem, how can I tell if mine does needs the fix?

three  If it does need the fix could someone who has the procedure please repost it? 

I have not run it yet as I do not want to damage it. 
As always all replies are greatly apprecioated!!
2097  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: New Large Scale Items on: February 13, 2007, 09:59:14 PM
Well at last there is a non Christmas set with an Annie, that is a first. 

Bach-man,  Any chance of you listing the item numbers for the new items?

2098  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Shipping and damage on: February 11, 2007, 11:44:19 PM
Sorry to hear about your misfortune.  Even though there was no damage to the packaging I would photograph all the damage and file the claim anyway.   Look the box over very carefully to see if there isn't an accordian look to one of the corners, or evidence of crushing, even minor crushing of the foam insert, as this would be evidence of the item being dropped.  if you find any evidence photograph it as well and push hard on Fedex to make things right.  You should also contact your seller and ask him or her not to use Fedex but USPS or UPS instead, and be sure to let FEDEX you are doing it especially if they refuse your claim!! 

If all else fails you could possibly make up a lot of your investment but selling the parts of the sets seperately on Ebay.   I just saw a broken engine sell for over $60 bucks!!!! Shocked Shocked Roll Eyes Roll Eyes.  If you sell the cars and track and transformer you may not only break even , but actually male a buck or two!  It happens every day on Ebay. 
2099  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Archive on: February 07, 2007, 11:41:45 PM
Bach man,
We appreciate your asking and I will keep my hopes up.  I used the search feature on the old archive very heavily, and it saved me lots of time.  I actually used it like a library of topics I wanted to use for future needs.  An example is the fix for the Rail Truck,  I have one sitting around yet to be fixed and now will have to start over to find the info. 

I could give many other examples. 

Regards

Hey dude,

To me the E&P 4-4-0 is just about the prettiest Bachmann Loco ever made,  Others think so too.  The E&P 4-4-0 sells for about $375 & up on Ebay.  If you really want one I'd grab it at the trainworld price.

Did you actually check t see if they still had an E&P unit?  I have heard they sold out of that roadname. 

Good luck
