I'm sure you meant to say 'cow catcher' and not 'pilot', as the pilots are the same on both versions.

It sounds like your pilot truck has turned backwards. Turn it around and you should be OK. BTW, there should be a little plastic insert with a white arrow on it that indicates front. It is seen on the bottom of the pilot truck.

Well what is it you want to see? A C-19 or a C-16?  Grin

If the locomotive has plastic wheels it is a battery unit. If they are metal it is track powered. If it turns out you need a transformer and track, Al Kramer at Al's Discount Trains usually has what you need at good prices.

"Seems we know more about the history than Bachmann does, 1987 would actually make it the 26th Anniversary! "

Or so you think.  Undecided

The company says 1990, so they are not celebrating the 25th anniversary this year. They could be wrong, but it's their company, no matter what is said here!

As quoted earlier from the Bachmann website, they themselves say the Big Haulers were introduced in 1990. The Annie was introduced in 2000 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Big Hauler 4-6-0. Who are we to argue with the company that produces them? I would say that the company statement is the "official" version. I'm sure they themselves will announce the 25th anniversary in 2015.

Now hold on. The Anniversary (Annie) version was introduced in late 2000 to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the Big Hauler line. Let me see....2000-10=1990. Not 1988. What gives?

I think you may have jumped the gun on the silver anniversary of the Big Haulers.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia.....

"Big Haulers

In 1990 Bachmann started to produce large scale train sets called the Big Haulers. These G scale models include trains, shays, and also streetcars. Their most famous line is the Emmett Kelly Jr. circus trains, introduced in 1993."

That would make 2015 the Big Hauler silver anniversary.

Hi Bill,

That's a pretty long train! How many cars in that consist? Good video BTW.

Loco Bill,

You do realize that jimdavis88 wrote: I plan two 4’R corners  on the one end, and the other end will be a 6’R ½ circle.

Now he may have written it incorrectly, but a 4 foot radius is an 8 foot diameter circle and a 6 foot radius is a 12 foot diameter circle. Surely that is an easy enough curve for almost anything!

@ Gion: Ich habe Dir eine email mit Bild geschickt. Wäre toll. wenn das klappt. Es ist genau die Seitenwange des Jackson Sharp Truck.




I have sent an email with a picture. Would be great, if that works. It is exactly the side panel of the Jackson Sharp truck.
