Title: Track Power Pickup for Big Hauler Truck
Post by: BillBrakeman on February 19, 2010, 11:35:57 PM
Is there an easy way to add track power pickups to the trucks of an Annie tender?

Thank you in advance for any assistance you might provide.

Bill

LGB's pickup assemblies work--the ones with the carbon brush and spring in the aluminum cup. --where there are places molded on the truck bolster.  If the mounting plsaces are not onthr Bachmann trucks, LGB also has a set of pickups with the mounting blocks.  gj

Thanks to everyone who had a suggestion.  I think I can take it from here.
