This is a really neat locomotive.  Needless to say I like it.

The dimension drawing is OK if I wanted axle center line to axle center line but not to good for the end to end over all length.

OK  Now would someone, who has access to a Bachmann C-19, please take a tape measure and find out how long (end to end) the engine and tender is, in inches.

Thank you

I find it interesting that the new Bachmann magazine does not want photos of OUTDOOR large scale railroads.
What gives?

5  Discussion Boards / Large / 2-6-6-2 wiring on: May 21, 2011, 11:45:45 AM
I am kit bashing the large scale Baldwin 2-6-6-2 and can not find out what the brown, white, orange, and yellow wires in the bunker are for.  I am putting a tender on the engine and removing the saddle tanks so it would help if I knew what these wires do.  Anyone know the answer to this question Huh?

Several years ago I was in Pioche (pronounced Pee-oach) NV.  There is an Indy 2-6-0 in a park near the Court House/County Seat/Sheriff's Office  (NV's million dollar County Seat location  from the 1800's).  I shot pictures of it and sent copies to Backmann (Bud Reece I believe).  The engine was in poor shape and could use some T.L.C.  It is almost identical to the Bachmann model.

Charles' book is very good coverage of a modern Narrow Gauge railroad.  But be careful of the dates for the last runs of steam.  SPNG had retired #8 and #9 by the dates in the book, #18 and #22 long before that.
I have talked with Charles about this dates and he has said something is wrong with them.  I have not gotten around to finding the verification, by source, for the actual dates.
I have built models of #18 and #22.  They run!!! (on my garden railroad).

This may not work for you, it works great for me but then I am not super picky.  It is so close to 4 chuffs per driver revolution You would have to run the engine very very slow to be able to tell it is not.   I put 3 magnets on a tender wheel and place the reed switch on the truck.  Using Phoenix Sound
the chuffing starts as soon as the engine moves.

I have used the LGB brushes with great success.  I made a hard wood mounting piece drilled a hole in it the size on the brush,  stick the brush in the hole in ther wood, solder the old pickup wire on, put on some adhesive on to keep the brush in place,  then bond the brust and fixture in place and no more problems.  Be sure and check the brush depth before bonding the bursh to the wood.

Another way to see if your K-27 locomotime has the new counter weights  is to remove one of the weights from the rear axle (the easest to remove).  Look inside where the mounting screw goes and if you see slots in the mounting face, if you do you have the old weights, if there are no slots you have the new weights.

11  Discussion Boards / Large / K-27-track powered-Phoenix sound on: January 11, 2008, 12:06:55 PM
I have installed lots of sound systems but I am not an expert in electronics so when I opened the tender on the K-27 I was a little lost and need some advice.  I will be using the Phoenix sound board  and all I need to know where do I pick up track power?,  where do I get the chuff signal (do I use a reed switch?), do I use a reed switch for the whistle signal (I am almost sure that is what I have to do)?
