It was obviously made to work with EZ Track. The picture is worth a thousand words.

Jerry - I meant Donaldon, not Dennis. We're talking about the controllers right? As you said, the controllers aren't attached to the turnouts.

Is this what you are talking about?

Perhaps "D" misunderstood?

Can someone take over Carl's site so it doesn't disappear?

I looked at the website again. It is form core. When I first looked, I thought it was foam.

3 layers of 2" foam glued together is quite beefy
Here it's sitting on 6 milk crates. No beams or corregated panels.

All the advice given on here was great advice. I'm aware of all these things.
My point was about the newbies to the hobby who buy a set and a couple of turnouts and then get disappointed when they keep getting derailments backing up.

So... They can't back them up with the stock EZ Mates? How about the weight?

ACY,
Great PR for Bachmann. "Kids - Don't buy Bachmann train sets if you want to back your trains up."

Can a kid buy a Bachmann train set with EZ Track and a couple of turnouts for sidings and back his cars up without them derailing? Why would he want to buy it to begin with if he has to also buy new wheels, couplers, coupler boxes, weights, and a scale to add the weights to the cars?

Scrooge - Based on your name, I suppose they would have to be free events? Grin

I've got one of the Pocher Bowkers and three passenger cars lettered for "Kansas City Chicago and St. Louis".

Sunhunting - Looks can be deceiving. It's the traction tires.
The cars are all stock Bachmann, Mantua, and Roundhouse old timers.
They aren't weighted and some have plastic wheels.
Properly weighted and with metal wheels, it wouldn't pull as many.

I guess it's time to repost the pic of my Bachmann Jupiter 4-4-0 pulling 29 cars up a 2% grade.
(the grade starts about where the green box car with yellow door is. On the lower right. )
These 4-4-0's have traction tires and can pull a lot. I could do a standing start on the grade, too. You can barely see the Jupiter on the right, about to go around the tree.
