I am considering a Bachmann GP32-2 Santa Fe Diesel with DCC and a Sth.Pacific 70 ton Switcher DCC,for my small layout. Recently retired a couple of very old Athearn DC Diesels    .
Do these Bachmann Diesels  have die cast chassis,and flywheels ?. Very happy with me Bachmann American 4-4-0 DCC,and the Jupiter 4-4-0 DC only.
Descriptions from On Line Dealers,leave much to the imagination,and or knowledge.

The GE 70-ton is a beautiful engine, i got some footage at my local model railroad club of it running.

Spend some time looking at the loco diagrams for these locos. The diagrams show a lot. I refer to the Bachmann diagrams quite a lot.
I just wish Bachmann would leave the diagrams of older locos up instead of dropping them.
