Hi
Well I have been going through by Connie after I got her new off eBay. Motor mount was loose as well as numerous screws. Also a cracked final gear and a cracked front pilot truck. Have spoken to the kind gentleman at Bachmann parts dept and have them on order.
That leave two problems left one how do you tighten up the counterweights on the driver (screw or Allen key) and the Tender base has a bow in it.
She really is a good looking loco.
Thanks
Martin

Hi All

My Heisler had paint that started to lift off the counter weights. Took them off cleaned them up and resprayed with Tamiya Matt Black (can).It is a perfect colour match. Hope this helps.
