1  Discussion Boards / On30 / 2-8-0 Baldwin builders plate on: March 13, 2007, 12:40:48 AM
Hello all

Has anyone else noticed what the number on the Baldwin builders plate on both the Forney and 2-8-0 is 3972, now what is the significance?

Baldwin 3972 is a 36" 4-4-0 which is preserved at the Smithsonian Institution. Named Jupiter and built by the Baldwin Loco Works in 1876.

So maybe the Bach-Man has had a liking for a 4-4-0 for longer than most realise.

I hope this is of interest.

Hello

I have been looking for the information listing the detailed differences between the Forney models offered by Bachmann.

By Details I mean what light and tender options are available. In particular I would like information on the unlettered inside frame, and outside framed locomotives.

I remember reading somewhere that one of the locomotives came with additional details.

Any help would be most appreciated.
