Title: Heavy Mountain Questions
Post by: john.myers on September 02, 2007, 10:52:25 PM
Dear Mr. Bach-man,

Three questions about the new heavy mountain 4-8-2:

1.  What type couplers will it have?  MT, Accumates, or the ones like what is on the N&W J and FM 16-44s?   Front and tender?

2.  What would one have to do to run it DC?  Does the decoder have to be removed?  It is discouraging that it is not offered in DC.  Is it too late to offer it non DCC?

3.  If it has the couplers like the N&W J and the FM 16-44s, have they adjusted the height above the rails so it matches MT and Accumates on other rolling stock?

Thank you!

John

Dear John,
It has Bachmann couplers, and will run out of the box on either DC or DCC. I don't have any other brands to compare, as I no longer model in N.
Have fun!
