I agree you have the 2007 Wondetland Flyer.  Great buy on the Trolly.

Have fun,

Did you pull the whole smokebox off the front?  or just open the little door on the front of the smokebox? 

If you opened the door, you should see two switches inside one is the smoke on/off.

If you pulled off the entire front of the smokebox you should have seen a bunch of wires which are behind the switches.

Good Luck

Perhaps Brian hasn't seen your question yet so I will respond.   The Bachmann locomotive you have has only the chuffing sound, but no whistle.

I am glad you got everything working OK

Many thanks to Mathew for the great illustrations, and correct spelling, I always seem to screw up the spelling.

Kybaugh,  There were many, but he fun of collecting all of them might be an interesting challenge.   I believe Wade Colyer has all of them.  Over the past year every single Christmas item appeared on EBay and except for a very few at very reasonable prices. Smiley

The Scrooge Collieries hopper car, The Mrs. Claus Eggnog tank car and the Polar Express Set, and the Dillards Trolly are the hardest to get, and might be considered rare at least on Ebay.  Roll Eyes

If you decide to go for it, Happy Hunting!! Cool

Dear Grumpy,

The Anniversary Edition 4-6-0 were sold with either the very detailed Walcherts Valve gear, or the Modified simplified Stephenson Valve Gear, but both were Anniversary 4-6-0's with the metal siderods and highly detailed bodies.  The number 10 Annies have the detailed Walshearts valve gear,  while the latest Annie #14 in the set has the simplified Stevenson valve gear.  Both are metal and both are Annies. 

The link belows shows an actual set box 90059 with Loco #14 an Annie with the simplified Stephenson Valve gear.

The one below shows the closeup of the #14 Annie striped from the set 90059.

The text shows this is an Annie.   

If you can send me a good full side photo of yours I will verify what it is. Please include the Bachmann item number from the original box.

There are many variation to the 4-6-0 some have the two window cab while others have the three window cab. 

I get a headache at times trying to figure it all out!!

Have a great Christmas.

Looks like they posted in one line or two line entries.    Hope you can figure out most of it.   The info provided is for the personal use of readers of this website.  I have copy righted the info above.  Please refer any who want the info to this website entry.    Please contact me if you wish to reprint the info elsewhere.

Hi All,

Here is my best shot,   This is my list of everything I know of that Bachmann made in Large Scale with a Christmas Theme.  It does not include the individual parts of the 2007 Northern Lights listed sepeerately.

It will take pouring through the data to understand the way some things are tied together.    I am not sure how my listing will print out on the forum.   Input wiil be for one line at a time per item, but it often shows up on the forum as a three line entry per item.

I am only human and so there may well be errors,  Please let me know of any errors readers might find, so that I can correct the entries.

Looks like most entries wiil be three lines starting with the Bachmann Item Number, Reporting Marks, Intro Year The $ amount is the original MSRP.  There will be various notes when applicable.    Some items have no number or two digits, because they they were only in a set

Bachmann made two North Star Express sets one is not a Christmas.

There are three 90047 Wonderland Flyer some variations exist.   

There are many other variations to numerous to mention.

I am open to questions on the above,  but please study the list in detail before asking.   Having said that I still believe there are no dumb questions!

Milk and cookies are out and I have to go to bed so Santa will come!  It will be my grandaughter's first!!!

Enjoy your Christmas

I have a list of all the Christmas Sets, but don't have them with me right now.  I will try to get it online in the next day or two..
2079  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: White Pass 'Anniversary' 4-6-0 Loco on: December 22, 2007, 08:50:48 PM
grumpy, which WPY set do you have?  The new WPY set has the Annie(90059) The number on the cab in this set is 14.  The original older WPY set (90095)had the older Big Hauler Standard 4-6-0 with the number 10.  I'm guessing you have the older set loco.  You can check the Bachmann Catalog and you will see the new set has the Annie.

Happy railroading!!!

Sorry to hear the bad news, you could still file a claim with the carrier.

If it your first train purchase, it is certainly discouraging.  If you have another engine hopefully you can use it to pull the Wonderland Flyer Cars.

Hi guys, We finally found a way to post the video it is in a seperate post I just put up.
2082  Discussion Boards / Large / Dateline Denver snow plow video on: December 21, 2007, 09:18:55 PM
Mike, here is the promised video.  Visiting my son in Denver we decided to plow snow on hi layout which is now under construction after a move to a new home.   We were going to use a Bachmann Connie and the Aristo wedge plow, but he didn't want to risk the Connie.  He has used the connie inthe past to plow but only in 2 inch deep snow. He ran the connie backwards pushing the plow behind the tender to avoid derailments caused by the long front coupler on the front of the connie.  He decided to use four of his D&RGW USA trains diesels to push the Aristo wedge plow through the snow which started at about  2 inches deep, and gradually increased to about 12 1/2 inches in a drift.  Next time we will get a better video. We plowed a few feet and saw that it was successful, and then backed up to go with a bit more speed. I kept increasing the speed till we hit the drift and stalled.  We backed up and hit it a gain and made more didtance.  We backed up a third time and went right through.  We were so excited we forgot to video the last two hits, which is a shame.  Now that we have some experience we will get a bettere video next time!!!!

Were we having fun or what!!! Grin Grin Grin Cool

Have a great Christmas.  I am hoping for more snow!!

2083  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Engine not working on: December 21, 2007, 08:00:33 PM
Brian is right if you just bought this new take it back and excange it for another set.   If you bought it on Ebay take up the issue with the seller.

If you are experienced you can remove the bottom plate and use your meter to check the wires where they attach to the motor. if dead there, then pull the front off the smoke box to expose the back of the switches,  check there for loose wires and solder as necessary.

If all else fails you can contact Bachmann and send it back for repair or replacement.  If it is brand new you will have to bear the cost of shipping to Bachmann and they will fix it and pay the shipping back.   You will need the receipt from an authorized dealer and or the warranty card.  You will find the latest warrnaty info on the Service/Parts tab just below the T in the Bachmann trains lettering at the top of the page.
Good Luck
2084  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: WP&Y passenger cars on: December 21, 2007, 07:10:46 PM
The 97 series cars are from 1992.  They were in the catalog from 1992 to 1997 and are replaced by the newer 89xxx series.   Unless you can find a dealer with lots of the old stock you are out of luck.

Best bet would be EBay, but ask questions to be sure you are getting what you want.  Many sellers don't give much detail.

Happy hunting.
2085  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Polar Express optional cars on: December 21, 2007, 10:55:34 AM
Glad we could help and no question is a rookie question as far as I am concerned.   Although they rarely show up on EBay you might be able to aquire a second set and that would give you an extra coach.  The observation would look ok as well.
