The Mopac got 8 from various sources, no. 941-948.  They had the stock tender but with a really unusual oil bunker curved on the rear.  One seems to have consistently used to switch the Mississippi River steam car ferry between Baton Rouge and Anchorage, Louisiana.  They consistently had footboard pilots and tall deep toned 6-chime whistles.

The running boards were very different from the Bachmann Model.  Thatís why my two are numbered  940 and 949.

Hi Mark,

I am hoping that the Yardmaster or the Bach-man will give a a more complete description or even a real photo of these 4-6-0's.

The drawings shown in color are just that drawings, They show some features of Annies, but others are similar to the Big Haulers 4-6-0. 

The drawings show the solid base under the boiler, rather than the see through on an Annie.  The drawings are also showing the Big Hauler style Walchearts valve gear which are different from the Annie version.  The drawing does show all the drivers with flanges, but again it is a drawing.  Same for the tender, looks much like the old style Tender.  It would be great to get some photos of the new tender.  Bachmann does say that it is a new addition to the Big Hauler line, so I am guessing the new 4-6-0 will be some kind of cross between the Annie and the Big Hauler version.   I am guessing that the tender does not have and operating rear headlight because the description says headlight (singular).  I am also guessing that the gearbox is the same as on the Version 5 & 6 chassis that has been so trouble free.   I have long thought that Bachmann might come out with a metal geared Big Hauler, but it seems we will be getting more than that considering there will be a new tender and metal valve gears and the PnP board.  Looks like it will be a nice surprise for all of us.     

Until we get photos of the real thing along with a more detailed description we will just have to keep guessing.   if I can get one for testing I will report here.

We might have to even come up with a new nickname for it!!!   


Please Yardmaster or Bachmann post some photos of the new unit and maybe a better description.

Thanks and Anticipating,

Loco Bill
