I can see where you would have a short if you did not have a gap, but that would  short out as soon as you turned the power on.  does it short out either route that you have the turnout set for? What are the turnouts used for.  Are they for a passing side, a dead end siding,or going from one track to another?  See we don't know what your layout looks like.

If you had inquired about some Plasticville parts about a month ago, and these are the parts that you inquired about.  Than I would say Bachmann just sent you the parts.

The old way was to just cut the rail.

It says it is sold out.  Try some of the dealers.

If 10 is what you use to run DC locomotives, than I would say it is DC ready.  The tender shell is easy to take off.

2-8-0 is a great steam locomotive for a small layout.

check for a short.  one of the trucks got turned around. Check to see if the motor will turn. Don't just sat it will not run.  there is a reason that it does not run.

I would say remove the shell so you can see inside.

1959 Tyco-Gilbert had Gibert bodies and the rest was Tyco.  At that time Tyco was Mantua.  My guess is that the trucks were metal and it would be hard to change the wheels.

Bachmann will order a batch of locomotives, cars, or what ever.  This number may be 1,000, 2,000 or what ever.  If these sell like hot cakes, than they may order another batch.  How ever when orders slow down, they will not order another batch.  To us, it is a hobby.  To Bachmann it is a business.  When is business you want things to move, whether it is locomotive,shoes, or a can of corn.  Check some of the hobby shops, they may still have some in stock.

Just make sure that all moving parts are lubed.
42  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Plus series Ho scale 2-8-0 on: June 27, 2017, 10:30:52 PM
I think they did the old reading 2-8-0 in the plus.

I don't know why any locomotive was meant to pull only Budd cars.
44  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Cutting track? on: June 24, 2017, 07:28:31 PM
A razor saw will also cut the rails, if it is NS.

Can you just get the part and repair it your self?
