1  Discussion Boards / HO / Backwoods Miniatures On30 Saddle Tank Disassembly? on: October 27, 2019, 10:51:22 PM
I have a Backwoods Miniatures On30 2-6-0 Saddle Tank. It uses the HO 0-6-0 saddle tank mechanism but I can't figure out how to remove the body to get to the mechanism to a dd DCC and Sound. Anyone know how to remove the body from one of these little beasts? Thanks in advance!

Is Bachmann switching their Sound On Board supplier from Soundtraxx to TCS WOWSound? I've noticed that they started using WOWSound in a couple new products such as the ACS-64 and now the just announced streamlined PRR K-4.

5  Discussion Boards / HO / Baldwin Modern 4-4-0 4 pin male plug on: September 14, 2016, 03:09:30 PM
Hi All,

I need an HO universal orange 4 pin male plug w/ wires that goes from the tender to the loco on the Baldwin Modern 4-4-0. I looked on the parts website a couple weeks ago and the had the orange universal 2 and 4 pin plugs but they were both out of stock. I looked again today and they have 2, 4, and 8 pin male plugs BUT they're white and not the same and won't fit in the female socket on the 4-4-0. Does anybody have an orange 4 pin male plug with wires in their spare parts bin that they could send to me or do you know where else I can find one? I've searched all over the internet with no luck. I just got off the phone with the parts department and they were no help at all. Thanks.

Johnny,

Where did you find this rope caulk and what size did you use?

Nathan

That works ,but if the speaker is not tight to the surface it will vibrate and can be herd .There is a very good thing that I found that has many uses in locomotives called rope caulk.It gives a good bond and is able to be shaped into anything ,but does not harden up like a putty ,but is a putty and will remove if necessary usually in  1 piece. Is not sticky ,but sticks.Great insulator for vibrations,holding wires in place,bulbs/led's in place.Is not a glue,Will not hurt the resin or paint ,and has no odor.

7  Discussion Boards / HO / Speaker clips for DCC/Sound Ready Modern 4-4-0 & 52" 4-6-0 tender frames on: August 19, 2016, 11:40:17 PM
I'm lookin for speaker clips for a Baldwin Modern 4-4-0 & a Baldwin 4-6-0 52" low boiler DCC/Sound ready tender frame. <http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_68_210&products_id=8715>. I looked in the part catalog and was only able to find clips for the  4-8-2 Heavy Mountain (sold out) and the J Class 4-8-4. Will the J class speaker clips <http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_68_89&products_id=4266> work with the 4-4-0/4-6-0 tender frame? I tried the Soundtraxx recommended 28mm speaker for it since I can use a speaker gasket but it's too big. I found some 25mm speakers that will work but I can't find 25mm round speaker gaskets and I'd like something, other than or in conjunction with silicone, to help hold the speaker in place. Thank you.

Thank you! I would like to replace the non-sound ready tender with this one to add sound without having to drill holes in the tender floor.

Nathan

Thst is the right tender frame for the 52" driver low boiler 4-6-0. How complete it is, can't tell.

 What do you want to do with it?  Do you have an engine without a  tender?

Will the tender frame in the link below fit the tender shell with the #82301 4-6-0? If not, which DCC/Sound Ready tender chassis with PCB and speaker grill (no speaker) will? Thanks.

Try this... http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_68_210&products_id=8715 and if that doesn't work just copy and paste the link.

Looking at the exploded parts diagram from the Bachmann website, not the paper one with my doodlebug, it shows the insulated wheels of both the power track and trailing trick on the left (-) rail. Thanks to all for the replies!

I can see which wheel is insulated. My question is which side, left or right, does the insulated side go on?

Nathan

You can usually tell visually where the insulating bushings are - normally between the axle and the wheel.  If it isn't obvious, the brute force method is to clip one lead from the power pack to an axle.  Turn up the throttle and brush the other lead on a wheel.  If it sparks, it is not insulated.  If it doesn't spark, insulated.  If you have a VOM meter, use the resistor setting to check continuity.

I checked the the exploded parts diagram but it didn't show which side was insulated.

Nathan

I believe that the power truck picks up on one side and the trailing truck the other, so the insulated wheels should be opposite each other between front and back

Thanks for the info. I'll have to try it and see what happens.
