OK, thanks for the quick reply.

Not sure what the difference is. You may want to contact SoundTraxx on this...

So, a while ago I bought the train, cars, and box to the Bachmann/Department 56 Heritage Village train.
So far, I've been able to buy the proper type of controller box and almost all the right (Bachmann) track.  But one piece still eludes me.  A straight section, 9", rerailer.  But not a rerailer/terminal.

The question is, was this the only set that had this particular piece of track?

Hi All

Newbie here. I bought a Bachmann Climax to run DC and bought the one with the dummy sound board with the intention of buying a cheap Econami sound board here in the UK.
Wanted to keep the cost (including tax) down for initial purchase from the US. Saved myself £180 buying the equivalent locally.

I can get a 881003 ECO-21P for around £60 which is available ex-stock, or order a 881006 ECO-21PNEM for £85-£90 but ordered in specifically via another seller.

What is the difference between the two Soundtraxx boards - specs appear the same - as I don't want to waste cash on a silly mistake.

Thanks in advance,

Part 1:
What is in the Bachmann smoke fluid?  I've heard propylene glycol, glycerine, and both.  And I'm wondering if I would be able to use vape juice in a pinch, because there's a vape store down the street and the local hobby shop (flea market permanent booth) is a bit small in inventory, specifically accessories.

Part 2:
If I wanted to use non-Bachmann smoke fluid, whose would cause the least 'spitting'?

RAM - The AC1601000 'wall wart' is the power supply for the 46605 speed controller that came in the set.

When my repair shop was open, I'd have someone bring in a one of those speed controls that had gone bad for one reason or another about once a week during the Christmas season. Either there was no output at all on the DC jack, or there was straight AC on what was supposed to be a DC output. So it does happen.

The 0-6-0 does come with DDC.  Now then i would think that the DC model should be DDC ready.

To me, this sounds like an AC unit.  Do you have any other train set like O gauge?

No Vanderbilt tenders that I know of on the SR.  The NC&StL used them quite a bit  though .

Hereís what you ought to do with that Vanderbilt tender.   The Bachmann 2-8-0 prototype is an IC 900 class .  At some early point some of them had coal Vanderbilt tenders.  Makes sense since the IC was a Harriman road like the SP and UP, also big Vanderbilt tender users.

Buy another Bachmann 2-8-0 , put your Vanderbilt tender behind it, and letter it for IC.  Then letter the leftover rectangular tender for SR and put it behind your SR engine. Move the bell to the smokebox front, put a forward tilted steamboat whistle on the left side of the steam dome and by criminy you have a presentable SR 2-8-0!

Or ..... contact me offline and Iíll buy that Vandy from you 😂.
