dats,I would send the locos and money in for service and or replacement. they are pretty good about that.In your cas they would probably replace the locos. you'll probably drive yourself crazy looking for parts,besides the new ones are nice.Hope this helps-----------hobo

bachmann n scale locos better than atlas or kato,Ithink not.Idont know if you own any or have taken them apart, but they are superior to bachmann in every way. bachmann makes some good n scale diesels and steam, but they are not in the same league as atlas or kato,they are the no1 n scale train makers    hobo

Herc driver the best radius for this train is 26 inch radius and above not only for looks but for running .  I would not go under 19 inches on this train .even 19 inch radius is a little tight for me.

both - use atlas insulating rail joiner clips . I use toggle switches to control power to my sidings- hope this helps   hobo

maybe  bachmann should consider making an affordable gg1.I would buy at least 5 of them. thanks for the info. I can see mth gg1 price probably around 300.00 a piece. whos got that kind of money to shell out for that -not I

john I looked into the bli models and for 200.00 you get everything in this loco. sound , everything and it even has a die cast frame. I think i'll be purchasing one soon. mehano is out of business and ihc may follow. dont trust ihc right now. still I wouldnt mind seeing a bachmann model but bli is high quality and seems worth the money

athearn trains is already setting up shop in china like eveyone else did.dont be surprised when you hear it . its the only way they can stay competative.If americans were still making trains an athearn bb kit would be double what it is now. when they all of china the they'll move their operations to india or some other cheap labor country When the chinese workers standard of living rises so does the price of model trains

cf, I have bachmann amfleets and con cor amfleets the bachmanns are a little nicer car. I use a material handling car with my amfleets. the concors have microtrains couplers. tc is right microtrains is probably working on making couplers for the amfleets , they should because they are a popular and good passenger car

wholesale trains had athearn rtr cars at 3.00 a piece and still do. I bought a ton of them
43  Discussion Boards / HO / gg-1 loco on: March 08, 2009, 01:25:23 AM
since mehano is now out of business I would love to see bachmann produce a gg1 in their standard line or spectrum line. bli  gg1 is a little pricey
44  Discussion Boards / N / Re: Amfleet couplers on: March 07, 2009, 12:27:02 AM
go to microtrains website, they make couplers and wheelsets for alot of brand name trains
45  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: New Amfleet cars on 18" curves on: March 02, 2009, 11:03:11 AM
bachmann amfleet cars can run on 22 inch and above . 24 inch radius and above is prefered for looks and proper running. the only cars that run on 18 inch curves are athearn shorty passenger cars-   hobo
