I found it, however there is no top switch??  What does that mean.  There is only the on/off smoke switch.

I have a 4-6-0 without the top switch too. The slot was put there for a direction switch.  All it means is that it our locos were manufactured before Bachmann started to install the direction switch but after the mold for the smokebox front was modified. I installed an on/off switch in that slot.

Your drive gear has broken. You need to replace the gear.

The Big Hauler trains are 1:22.5 scale which represents narrow gauge in G gauge. Notice I said G gauge and not scale? That's because there are several scales that run on the same track (45mm).

You already have tested your smoke unit. Oil in, run engine. No smoke=bad smoke unit. Pretty simple,eh? On a serious note;make sure the smoke switch behind the smoke box door is in the ON position.

You will need 12 # 94501 curved tracks and 4 #94511 straight tracks.

New Bachmann is pricey. Try E-bay for a better deal.  Wink

You have these drawings right here in this site:




I should have stated that my Porter is the 1:22.5 Big Hauler version. It's a little different. What I really needed to know was how the rear drivers are attached. Judging by this drawing, they appear to be pressed onto the axle.

Thanks for the link, I think it will be helpful.

I'm looking for an exploded view of the Bachmann Porter. Anyone have a file they can send me?  Huh?

Have you got a link for 'Stock Drive'?

First off, the 4-6-0 is a ten wheeler. A mogul is a 2-6-0.

Some tenders have a volume control on the bottom of the tender. If yours does, rotate it clockwise for maximum sound.

Re: "Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotives, 2-6-0 represents the wheel arrangement of two leading wheels on one axle, usually in a leading truck, six powered and coupled driving wheels on three axles, and no trailing wheels. This arrangement is commonly called a Mogul"

The Bachmann metal wheels are insulated from each other by a plastic axle.  Wink

Can my exiting manual Bachmann turnouts be used outside mated to brass track? I know my hollow steel rail B'mann track will rust, but my turnouts use what appears to be stainless rail (non-magnetic). What say the experts?  Huh?

You won't go wrong with a USA Trains Train Power 10. I recently purchased on and I am well pleased with it's performance. It has enough amperage to run all four of my  B'mann 4-6-0 locos simultaneously. It has variable momentum and a braking feature, along with a wired walk around remote throttle.
