Thanks. Worked slicker than journal grease! Grin

I'm sure this is not a new question but it's a new situation for me. Does any one have an answer to my predicament? How does one remove the offending grab iron "stump" without damaging the surrounding area? Do they make little tiny ez-outs? (I already looked inside, the holes don't go through.) I'm sure the answer is simple, but for me, a real obfuscation. Huh?

Thanks, GovB

With matching caboose no less.

Dear Santa (Bach Man), This is my Christmas loco and I love to watch my grandchildren as they watch it round the tree. But, every year I also wonder; Shouldn't it have a straight stack?

Like this one?

Which is not mine. Do you have a "replacement" stack you could put in my stocking for Christmas? (I'll settle for a part number and someone to call.)

Merry Christmas! and thanks, GovB

Dear Bach Man,

I as well as others are excited and happy about the new fine scale caboose but, was any thought given to a stripped-down version (sans interior & electronics)? Something that would fill the gap between it ($275) and the 1:22'ish Eight-Wheel Caboose with Center Cupola & Interior series ($55) for us poor folk?

Thanks, GovB Sad

I like the differences. It's the realism that makes this fun for me.  Smiley GovB

Thanks for that lead. I googled USA Trains #1641 and the first thing that popped up was "USA Trains Info Registry". Listed about half way down the page is #R-1641 Saint Louis Beer 1641. You guys are great.

Thanks, GovB Smiley Smiley

Here is a reefer proported to be a Bachmann on eBay. I have my doughts. I've checked my limited collection of Bachmann & LGB catalogs and found nothing. Can any one ID this reefer Huh?

Thanks, GovB  Smiley
39  Discussion Boards / On30 / On30 Christmas Set & Buildings on: September 24, 2009, 04:30:52 PM
I just bought my first On30 Christmas Set but I'm a bit confused as to what scale buildings to use with it. I put it next to a Lemax Christmas train station but somehow it just didn't look right. Any thoughts, ideas or photo examples would be a big help. I'm sure this question has been asked before but this is my first time on this board.

Thanks, GovB  Huh?

More great Info! Thanks.

Have not checked w/Apt. Mgt. yet  but, great info on curve cuts and over-hang.  I was considering using 6 shelving but, given the pointer on front pilot over-hang, now I think 8 would be better.  I was thinking of using Bachmann track vs brass track because of the weight difference.  Weight would not exceed LGB 2-6-0 or Bach 4-6-0 + 6 or 8 cars.  Would changing cars to plastic wheels help very much with sound dampening?  Is cork road bed the best for this application?  How thick?  Nail or glue?

I'm sure I'll have more questions later. Huh?

Thanks, GovB Smiley

Thanks Jestor. Apt. management will be my first stop. The simple things you never think of. I was just thinking of it as a long shelf.

I've looked online and the wall & ceiling systems are a bit pricey but very well done. But, they gave me some ideas. Any others?

Thanks, GovB  Smiley

Planning on wall mounting a loop around my 11' x 22' den (top of door height) and would like ideas on eliminating/dampening the vibrations associated with my 4-6-0 with several cars as they whirl around the room. This is very important as I live in an apartment and don't want to disturb others. Also, if you have suggestions on materials, brackets and anchoring for the do-it-your-selfer it would be great also.

Thanks, GovB  Huh?
43  Discussion Boards / Large / Coupler Help! on: March 25, 2009, 10:58:21 AM
I have some Delton and LGB Reefers and would like them to match up with my Bachmann locos and rolling stock (both 1:24 & 1:20.3). Went to Kadee web site and still confused. Could someone tell me which Kadee coupler will do the trick? Or is there another answer?

Thanks, GovB Huh?

After some internet searching, a computer crash, and more internet searcing, I was able to find an interesting "real-world" answer to my problem. It appears that Polson Lumber Co. of Tocoma had these Russel Wheel & Foundry Model 55 disconnects made with extended knuckles. Is there a way we can duplicate this in "our world"?

GovB Huh?

I guess this answers my question on the Thomas & Friends discussion board about when/if Bachmann will ever offer Thomas & Friends with DCC. I never imagined large scale. This is great Bach Mann. This is one giant step toward a DCC Thomas & Friends product line. The kid in me looks forward to the first release.

Bach Mann, you rock! Cheesy


PS, I agree with tac as well.
