If it's the same as their typical 6-wire plug arrangement it would go like this -



-Mark


first time decoder installer's ...
note if installing dcc the bottom 2 brass colored tag's must be slipped off - other Wise the decoder will burn out .

Lemme guess…

The infants and primary students you once taught are millennials?



yes your correct 5 to 10 year old children - I am sorry we have differing words meaning the same (trash can = UK dust bin could be used for the set in question  Grin )

A boxcar and a diesel by themselves does not sound like a “set “.

if you have read the above post from plas man to James in FL - now you fall into the same category .
 found HO has told you he found a set with loco and box van - that is all you have read - now if you care to read further Found HO gives a full description of the set they have found .

for the resale value of the set , surly been the late husbands it would be worth more in sentimental value ?

20160519 - now this is date of manufacture - read it backwards that should read ...
25th of November 2018 - yes you are right , at least you are paying attention


WTF??  I read that as year 2016, month 05 May day 19

How the hell do you get Nov 25 2018? from that?


well as a retired infant/primary school teacher that teaching always works , if I had given you the answer you would not have worked it out for yourself = ''I do and I under stand'' .



21  Discussion Boards / N / Re: Speed of new Thunder Valley N scale set on: March 21, 2019, 12:00:04 PM
sorry fmfls can not help with the turn outs as I use track from a well known Japanese manufacture .
try ...
wheels out of gauge
is some kind of junk stuck in the frog
flash (plastic or metal) on a wheel set from manufacture
the hanging down bit on the coupler snagging on the turnout
is the bottom of the truck fully clipped in position (could be lifting the wheels when reach the frog)


the Kato switch's are noted for the blades not meeting flush with the track - causing derail when running on - ok when running opposite . It could be same with Bachmann as you say there is bad reports about them .

the same loco in the McKinley Explorer not a speed machine , not as fast as the F9's in my  earlier set .
it should free the more its used,

I dont know if this may help - on newer or even newer Bachmann loco's or stock - inside the box printed on the card packing you will find a number  some thing like this ... 20160519 - now this is date of manufacture - read it backwards that should read ...
25th of November 2018 - yes you are right , at least you are paying attention  Grin

I would have thought that the patent was for one item or invention or whatever you want to call it  '
as two scales are mentioned then two patents would be needed ?
26  Discussion Boards / N / Re: Couplers on: March 05, 2019, 04:33:17 PM
if the new loco has knuckle couplers , then Bachmann do a Rapido version that simply fits into the coupler box on the new loco's or car's/coach's . there is usually a packet (2 Rapido's) in new items of rolling stock .
27  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: N Scale Bachmann Thomas on: March 05, 2019, 04:26:41 PM
well you guys - with the amount of interest shown in this thread Bachmann would be silly not to manufacture Thomas in N scale . it would be a top seller - the only contender is Tomix and they are hard to get even when new and largely over scale .

my request is for a walking talking full DCC  ''Sir Topem Hat'' .
28  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: 2019 Official Announcements on: February 22, 2019, 04:55:18 PM
I was wondering if Bachmann has taken the Tomix  Thomas range over for N scale Huh?
if so lets hope it is re-scaled .

best bet - as any good hobby shop usually has is a oval test track 0/H0/N/Z on a board the size of the 0 scale circle with other scales inwards . Forget rolling road except running in .
as mentioned above a split gear - and its not only older loco's , common on to-days products - if only Bachmann would sort out the problem .
