     Thanks guys, I just wanted an answer before I buy one and find that it's junk.   Now, the loco I am looking to get is a PA Nickel Plate Road;  was it produced around the time of these wheelset problems?

     18" r. curves are the worst to couple cars together, even with the 40' replicas.  When coupling cars together on curves, the wider the curve, the better;  with longer cars, such as these, you will need even wider curves still.  Putting it all on track, it is absolutely undesirable to couple cars together on curves, since each couple is at an angle instead of straight.

Depends.
Gene

     Thanks for answering, but I would like to know how or why you think they are actually worth that much.  All my locos (5) are Bachmann, so I don't really know how to word the question.  Thanks for any more info.

     Is the Walthers line of Proto 2000 locomotives actually worth as much as they sell for?

     Sometimes the picture itself can portray a difference when there is actually no difference at all.
36  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Bachmann EMD-FTB Unit...Is It DCC-Ready? on: March 01, 2008, 06:51:23 PM
Bachmann has both DC and DCC for this loco.  Only certain Bachmann steamers are DCC-ready.

I think everyone has some respect for Thomas.
I was referring to several of the Thomas Fans found in the Thomas forum, who can be quite a funny bunch.
True, entertaining huh?

     Why, sure, I'm 21 and I still love Thomas, just not as radically as some of them on the forum.
As for Chug, I think he decided to leave this topic.

     Call either number you want to, and just take your chance.

Sorry Gene, I did not know you had talked to anyone. Cheesy

     Try these phone numders:
800-356-3910 (if you live in USA or Canada)
215-533-1600

As far as I know, no one on this board has gotten anywhere with the toll-free number.  If you do not like sitting for a long time to talk to somebody, then use the 215-533-1600.

For me, it is a little hard to say. Undecided Undecided

My favorite railroad is the NICKEL PLATE ROAD (NKP).
My favorite steam locomotive is the N&W's class J 4-8-4.
My favorite frieght diesel is the EMD SD45. (Great Northern paint scheme)
My favorite passenger diesel is EMD E7. (also Great Northern)

As of right now, my favorite engines from the NKP are:
Steam~2-8-4 Berkshire
Diesel~GP30

     Yes, without the circuit board, the eyes would move as fast as the loco. Cheesy
42  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Bachman shark noise on: February 22, 2008, 12:41:47 PM
     Well, it could be the motor hum is being reflected and therefore intensified by the locomotive's shell.  You could take the shell off and try putting some this packing foam around the metal frame, that way the shell does not vibrate against it.  Other people on this forum have done this, but I haven't yet.  It will not eliminate it, but it will soften the noise.
43  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Bachman shark noise on: February 21, 2008, 03:12:10 PM
     Going down a grade would cause a grinding noise if the cars were pushing the loco at some point, or the down grade might be too steep.  As for slowing down, I've only experienced it when I was running it too fast and then slowed it quickly.

I hope I could have been of service.
44  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Bachmann Return on: February 12, 2008, 10:57:51 PM
     I have a locomotive to return to Bachmann for technichal problems.
But my question is this: "What does it mean by 'return it, postage prepaid'?" Huh?

 Cheesy Thanks,  That does sound a little better than the first way I understood it. Grin
