T enshodo and the old Bachmann are not in the same ball park.  There  is no easy fits for the old Bachmann other than park it for looks.  They do look nice.

Maybe I am a little late getting this in, but I just want to say "the more I use the new forum the more I like it.  It sure saves a lot of time over the old one. "

It is a shame that more steam locomotives were not saved.  No prr t1s, no NYC 4-6-4s or 4-8-4.  Santa Fe 3460 cut up.  No Santa fe 2-8-2s, 4-8-2s or large 2-10-2s. 
We have the only 2-10-2 saved and it is one of the small 900 class.

I saw one that I think they used two 4 by 8 sheets of plywood.  One was attached to the wall.
Then they took 1 by 4s and attached them to the edges so you ended up with a box on the wall
about 3 inches deep.  Then the other sheet of plywood was attached so that it would fold up into
the box.  You could put pictures or something on it to look at when it was folded up.

Try doing a search on EBT,s 2-8-0 and 4-6-0 on Google

The tenders of the spectrum 2-8-0 is the same.  To Make it DCC you pull the plug and plug in a decoder.  The wires are the same. The difference is the dcc had the plug pulled and the decoder pluged in.

Now if you are from Arkansas a hog head hat is something else, and a call to go with it.

i would think that you would Block on any layout of any size even if you are the only operator.  It makes it easier to find shorts.
1556  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: ebay on: April 10, 2007, 10:44:24 PM
After more checking i found the problem with the 2-8-0.  It has a cracked sprocket.  This is just a guess.  It is one of those dollar parts that they don't sell.  You must buy the whole power unit.  I got my parts and I was right.  you must buy the power unit, motor, flywheel, belt, gear, to get the sprocket.  So it ended up costing me about what a new locomotive would cost.

I didn't think the GS-4 was a Spectrum version.

I do not remember what the driver size is on the MDC roundhouse 4-4-2 is.
1559  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: NMRA 8pin plugs on: April 08, 2007, 04:58:19 PM
that is what I was thinking.  The way I look at it the only time it would be better is if you want to some day replace a decoder.
1560  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / NMRA 8pin plugs on: April 07, 2007, 09:33:11 PM
How big of a job is it to install the NMRA 8pin plug.  I have just been hard wiring the units that are not plug and go..
