Look at the exploded diagram:

You should be able to disengage the motor bracket 'hooks' from the bottom of the loco, then lift the bracket up and out.

I think that the flat cars that Metal mentioned (found at the bottom of the previous page of this thread) is a fantastic idea. I could imagine them doing very well in the market, especially since there is such a demand for the discontinued flat car with paint drums. Iron girders and steel pipes would be great examples of loads. Timber is another load that I thought of.

This goes to show that there is so much that can be done with the flat car.

In addition, if I am not mistaken, the announcements are now less than one month away. Becasue of this, I thought that now would be a good time to make my lists of what I think Bachmann will announce and what I truthfully hope that Bachmann announces, just as JD417 and Chaz did.

What I think Bachmann will announce:

Ventilated Van - Explosives
Spiteful Brake Van

Narrow Gauge:
Peter Sam or Duncan
Brake Van (Light Brown)

Resin Buildings:
Ffarquhar Station
Narrow Gauge Double Engine Shed

Large Scale:
Red Coach
Red Brake Coach

What I hope Bachmann will announce:

Flat Car (2-3 with different loads)
Spiteful Brake Van

Narrow Gauge:
Peter Sam or Duncan
Brake Van (Light Brown)

Resin Buildings: (In priority order as I do not expect Bachmann to make all of them in one year Wink)
Narrow Gauge Double Engine Shed

Neptune Refreshments

Castle Ruins (Season 7)

Ffarquhar Station

Large Scale:
Red Coach
Red Brake Coach
Lady Hatt

All in all, as long as Daisy and/or at least one new resin building is in the 2018 announcements, that's all that I will need to feel content.

Thank you Len for your advice to check the loco with the 9V battery. I have checked it with the battery and it looks like the loco is fine - the lights are on and wheels slowly spinning. So, I assume that something is wrong with the speed controller. I will check it.

Update: I have checked the speed controller and found that there is a loose connection on mother DC output socket. On socket I have about 24V but when I connect the cord into this socket there is no V. I will try to find a similar socket in the store or will just weld cord directly to the speed controller board.
Thank you for your help guys!

MRPP, I bought my Soundtraxx DCC decoders from Bachmann Parts Dept:

I've purchased these decoders for my 3 Climax locos, my 2 Forneys and my 3 K-27s.

They drop right in.

I hope this info is of value.

I have an HO scale Bachmann B23-7 that I want to convert to DCC.  How do I remove the motor brackets so I can separate and isolate the motor from the chassis?  Thanks much for any help.

Mr. Bach Man:
How about the shell of an old MONOPOLY 0-6-0 onto a new 0-6-0?
Are the shells easy to remove?

OK Great.  So now tell me about the locomotive.

The company is "Jouef". They are a French company.

Looks like an interesting train set but I worry about the quality of a 25 year old locomotive.  A post I read said the loco was made by a company named Josef (?) not Bachmann. They are selling for upwards of $100, and without a reliable loco, that's too much.  One seller on E-bay wants $150 WITHOUT the locomotive, just the tender.  Any thoughts.

I want to add more auto reversing track to my layout. Probably 4 straight and 4 curved. How many can I add without running into problems?
