Hi Joe,

You've got mail!

Hi Joe,

I have never been asked that question before, but here are the readings off of my Fluke 73 meter.

Testing directly to the motor leads gives a reading of 27 ohms.

Testing a completely wired dual motor locomotive (with reverse board and True Blast II board installed) with the leads hooked to roller pick-up and ground gives a reading of 6.7ohms .

I hope that helps,

You could do one of three things.

1. You can use the plug in boards if you want.  They come with plugs with the wires attached.

2.  You could get a 6 amp bridge rectifer and run in one direction only.

3. The DC power pack will work if it has enough AMPS.  A typical 2 motor diesel draws about 2 to 2.5 amps.

Hi Casey,

The old site was way out out date because all the item numbers had changed as well as some product selection.  Bad information is worse than no information so we took the online catalog down.  We are working on it now and will be integrated into the Bachmann site very soon.

We will post the photos of the new items as soon as we have approved samples.  They will be worth the wait.

399  Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.s) - READ ONLY FORUM / Williams by Bachmann / Can I start my locomotive in neutral instead of forward? on: May 20, 2008, 09:20:43 PM
Our default reverse board sequence is FORWARD - NEUTRAL - REVERSE - NEUTRAL.  Some other brands of O Gauge start in neutral.

One of our customers submitted this modification.  We have tested it and it works perfectly! It will sequence NEUTRAL - FORWARD - NEUTRAL - REVERSE after the modification is complete. Click here for modification instructions and diagram.
400  Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.s) - READ ONLY FORUM / Williams by Bachmann / Can I lock my locomotives in Forward? on: May 20, 2008, 09:05:43 PM
Our locos start in forward and will reset to forward approximately 8-10 seconds after the power is shut off. If you still need to lock out. Click here for modification instructions and diagram.

Hi Parawulf,

We will be mailing copies to Platinum Club customers and other customers with recent account activity.

Your Heritage unit will be shipping in the next couple of weeks.

The F-3's are part of the Golden Memory Series, so they are painted like the Post-war versions.  The E-7's will have prototypical paint schemes, but there are no pictures in the catalog.  We will have them later in the year, and will post a photo when we get a sample.

The catalog is at the printer right now. We will have them at the York show later this month.

Hope to see you there!

The CW-80 transformer does not sequence ANY brand electronic reverse board correctly unless a light bulb is hooked directly to the track power.  If you add a lighted caboose or passenger car to the train it will sequence properly.  If you do not have either of these, you can wire a house light, lighted lock-on, or other lighted accessory to the track.

Have fun!
405  Discussion Boards / Williams by Bachmann / Re: Williams 150 Watt Transformer on: March 25, 2008, 09:31:44 AM
The transformer was tested with all major brands of locmotives with sound when it was designed about 4 years ago.  The addition of the smoking caboose should be fine.  The only sure way to know is to measure the current draw with an amp meter.  Watts = amps X volts.  If your watt calculation is under 150 then it will be fine. The size of the layout should not matter if you have muliple power feeds to your track to overcome any poor connections at the track joints.
