Just left this on the HO board but I thought this might be a better venue.

I just did a search on e-bay for REFER cars, many came up.  Then, I tried a search for REEFER cars and a whole 'nother batch came up.   Never really noticed this before.  Is there a right & wrong way?

You bet.  Driving rods, wheels, axles and anything that moves will get a drop of oil.  I'll have to open the tender and no paperwork will come with the loco/tender but I hope I may be able to find some on HO SEEKER. Have a good one.  Thanks, Len

Thank you, Len for the insightful info and for staying on topic.  That don't always happen.  I went ahead and bought the loco and 4 cars $95.  I may be wrong but, if need be, it seems like replacing a motor in the tender would be easier than one in a locomotive.  I'd like to think there would be more area for "wiggle room" Thanks again.

Mr. Bach Man:
How about the shell of an old MONOPOLY 0-6-0 onto a new 0-6-0?
Are the shells easy to remove?

OK Great.  So now tell me about the locomotive.

Looks like an interesting train set but I worry about the quality of a 25 year old locomotive.  A post I read said the loco was made by a company named Josef (?) not Bachmann. They are selling for upwards of $100, and without a reliable loco, that's too much.  One seller on E-bay wants $150 WITHOUT the locomotive, just the tender.  Any thoughts.

I just knew somebody would say it wasn't a "B" unit.  If you read the post you would note I indicated 4 axles, as opposed to a six axles, but you knew that.  Thanks anyway.

Its a "B" unit, 4 axles.  Long fuel tank, reaches almost to the trucks on both ends and 2 figures in the cab.  Can't tell actual wheel base.

There is a seller on e-Bay offering a Spectrum chassis that runs well but has no idea what shell fits on it.  Is there any way to tell by just looking?

Thank you Bach Man.  I'll give it a try.  Since I've never been to a Starbucks I'll have to track one down.  Just plain old coffee for me.  Thanks.

Makes sense - but how much turning do you do.  I'll have to practice.  Thanks.

I know this is a Bachmann site but I'm asking about an old LifeLike track cleaning caboose, item #08584.  I've looked all over, including HO Seeker, to find out what the little, turn-able, square thing is sticking out of the tank top.  What happens when it's turned? Did some kind of "key" originally came with this?  Just curious.

Thank you!  The guy on e-bay was listing it as HO. I thought is was 'G' but just wanted to be sure.

Did Bachmann make BIG HAULERS in HO Scale?
