 :)  I too am happy to see this finally happen, I am having some problems accessing the diagrams as the drop downs do not seem to cover the underlying text leaving a double image look and I have trouble reading the drop downs.

Anyone else having problems?

I am with Scot, on this one and have used it for the same reason on my kitbashes.  I don't worry about the color contrast, since I give my kit bashes a coat of primer before final painting anyway. 

Thanks for all the great responses, there are certainly a lot of great techniques out there and I love learning all the new tricks!!

If it doesn't run well, and is one of the electric powered 4-6-0 locomotives you could send it to Bachmann for repair.  Give them a call and dicuss the problem with them.  Ther is a fee involved, as I recall $25 and you will have to pay to ship it to them, they will pay return shipping.   Repairs can take awhile, depending on the backlog of repairs, but they do a fantastic job!   I have done it and was very satisfied!!

Good luck
Bachmann did offer a circus set radio controlled, just like the one you have.  There several different sets, not a lot different, but there were both the 27 mgz and 49 mhz transmitters & receivers in the locomotives. this allows 2 train operation on the same track.  Bachmann RC locomotives are sold on EBAY every week.  the ones with road numbers ending in 7 are 27 mgz and those ending in 9 are 49 mgz.  They go for very reasonable prices.

Happy railroading!!

Height is 5&1/2 inches from rail to top of roofwalk, 4&3/8 inch from the top of the roofwalk to the bottom of the frame, Width Eave to Eave is 4&3/8 inch and the length is 15&3/4 inches not including the couplers.  Hope it helps!
My best guess is 32 feet, be sure to show us a picture when you get it done!!

Vic, You are right about the Sculpty figures, they are definitly cheap to make.  My problem is that I have absolutely no knack for making them.  One of my club   members who has a little talent compared to me, has made a whole set of custom circus figures that look really great!!!

There are several of these om Ebay right now, they are selling for #89 to $100, or at least have the last few I saw sold.

Great Idea David!!

At $5 or 6 bucks per figure it is very expensive to fill a passenger car,  It is even worse whan you have to cut these expensive figures up just to get them to fit in a seat!!! :(

I definitely like that idea 8), because I still use track power and have that kind of system to recharge my sound system.  It is built into the sound card so I wouldn't know how to replicate it, but it is definitely something that could be done.

I agree with Matt and much prefer the battery powered lighting.   I was looking over the track powered cars and noticed that they come with metal handrails while the battery powered cars have the old plastic handrails. 

I would love to see the metal handrails and battery powered lighting become the standard.

Ny vote goes to doing runs of 4 different numers, and all reruns of the same item in four different numbers. 

I believe it would be a good business decision and increase sales!
Please.  Would definitely appreciate it!
