You have built in the past a B&M Consolidation engine, I wish you had made a DCC model with a different number on your recent release last year. Perhaps next time, by then you may have added sound. I don't know if you released an undecorated model, if you did, my source is out.

This information is from an internet company that I purchase perhaps 85% of my stuff from. “BuyNScale.com” I own a Consolidated, according to one that I was bidding on, built in 2002. That sounds right because I remember running this one prior to my surgery in 2005. Now I purchased the tender your talking about, and I just compared the coupler on both, and the mounting look identical, so I imagine this will work.

At least you figured how to take it apart, I haven’t yet. I thought Bachman would have at leased stated what decoder to use. I stopped bidding on that one since I have 2 already, and both of these are hardwired, the reason for the tender, the cost for my to have decoders professionally installed is $75, plus shipping both ways, and if I want sound, well that is extra. Well right now I have other engines to put decoders in before our next show in August. Good luck with your project.

Shocked CATS2287, haven’t you read the notice that came out right after we had a change in Washington???  N-Scale are not toys, but models, and are not for those under 14? My Grandson’s were very upset when I told them that, the older one, who is now 15 had been running my trains, since he was 12. His younger brother joined us 2 years later when he turned 12. They both have their own engines, and rolling stock, they run their trains when the group of 10 adults, many retired put on exhibits for the public. They have attended shows that we have exhibited at; last year The Great American Train Show, The Golden spike, the NMRA Piedmont Division, The Great Train Expo,  as well as a couple of shows at churches to help them raise funds. I comment you for getting involved, and I hope it brings you many years of joy. We run N-Scale, and follow the National T-Trak standards. Those standards have been expanded on, which is what we actually, but still comply with the National Standard so we can also take our modules to National Shows. We have been contacte from others living in Virginia, and Texas to see if we will try and set up at the NMRA show that is coming to Atlanta next year. If can be a lot of fun, so keep it up.

I couldn't find a way to contact Bachman direct so maybe some one there will read this. It was assnounce that they were going to makd a B&M model, now their site does not show it Huh? If I put in the product # 81467, it does come up. So I have 2 questions, is Bachman going to make it, and secondly, any chance of having any passenger cars left over. I would like to have 2 or 3 to connect to my Bachman Consolitated to make a train similar to what I use to ride on to Boston from my home town. Can't wait for my RS-3's, and a friend of mien got the little 44 toner to work, I will be testing it out this weekend at his open house.
