I am looking at a couple engines. one is a sd40-2 the other is a Gp40-2. I am pretty sure the GP stands for General purpose. can someone tell me what the SD stands for. also what would be the  difference between the two.

9  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Wiring help needed ASAP on: December 11, 2017, 09:39:31 PM
I have somewhat the same problem with my Bachmann 4-6-2 except I only had to work with the 2 wire connector. I am going to say that if Bachmann follows their normal wiring the 2 wire connector is the rail pickups. one for the left rail and one for the right rail. hope this helps
10  Discussion Boards / HO / black drivers on locos on: November 28, 2017, 04:10:11 AM
I don't know if anyone else has this problem. but when I get a new engine from Bachmann its wheels come black or blackened. i try to remove this but it does come off because when i try to operate the engine it seems to operate jerky or needs nudging to get it to move. anyone have any ideas to get this compound off of the wheels so as to get a better electrical connection. and yes i have cleaned my tracks with bright boy and alcohol.

I am looking at making a incline but am trying to remember the formula.  is it 2" drop for every 8' of length  or 2" drop for every 100" ? where would I find it?

I had the same problem with my CP s2 from Bachmann. I got a decoder with no medium plug on it. found a place that sells the medium plug and soldered the medium onto the wires of the decoder and it works great. you should be careful when soldering and be sure to look at the wiring diagram for medium plugs. hope this helps

milwroadfan261,  thanks for the help. after doing as you explained the body came right off. I put in a decoder but now body won't go back on. I think I may have to use a n scale decoder with a long harness. 
but again thanks.
if you have any ideas of what decoder to use please tell me
