Large / Re: Do you run steam and diesel?

Steam. Not attracted to the dark side. They are evil.

Just kidding.....I'm sure some are really nice.
When did you purchase yours, was it purchased new?  I assume you are talking about the gear that they have had a "D" replacement available for years and is not that expensive.

Will this work from the 2-8-0?  I thought I read at one time that they were all the same?  No?
I've just seen mine where there were colored wires then they became black especially where could be seen.
I think the mainly black is a result of painting wires to hide them. But it is what it is.
You end up having to trace them.
Large / I am looking for this connector part
June 01, 2023, 02:44:38 PM
I am looking for where to get a male end for the connectors that Bachmann uses for going between the engine and tender.  In particular the 6 pin cable CONNIE-10548.  I talked to parts and she has no idea but said they never got the corresponding end for the 6 pin just got the 2 and 4.

I don't think so but make sure you have the slip drive shaft. Others will probably jump in.
Is the above linked item what Bachmann originally shipped in the accessory bag of the C19, K27, 2-6-6-2, 3 truck Shay, etc., for those 1.20 engines to pull their Big Hauler cars?

I don't remember it just said something about the 350 limit and I even tried the smallest resolution.  It said contact administrator but they have never been responsive so I post on another site.

Does anyone know the history of these?  I recently acquired 2 of these (see pics) on eBay.  Both have the same number but one is more reddish and with a black roof the wording is a also more extensive on it. The other has the body and roof the same color. I'm guessing just different release dates?

That's why I said just buy it and be done. I didn't go into the full details like no one sells parts except Bachmann and they only have certain parts that they do with the original release and not a lot from what I gather. When they are gone, they are gone never to be back. Except some profitable, read high dollar, parts they can sell because they sold enough problem units that people are still trying to deal with, like you now. That explains why they still sell the trucks. In fact they got more in sometime last year.  So some of us buy non running units on eBay to strip for parts, but that's even getting expensive.  A couple years ago you could find these 38 ton Shays for couple hundred bucks.  Not now.    It's like working on a 50's or 60's vehicle. You have to chase parts as they ain't making fenders for a '55 Willys Wagon anymore. You gotta search for it and get what you get. That example is a real one I'm going thru right now. And these Shays came out in the later 90's so in todays world that's a model T.
