I just completed my counterweight replacement as well.

I used a 9/32 six point socket, a #0 phillips screwdriver, followed the instructions in Bachmann's photo gallery.....25 minutes later: DONE!

I also found that using an eye glasses flat blade screwdriver worked very well popping off the end caps.

I wanted to chime in and thank everyone for their time and advice in trying to fix this problem.

I have not yet run my K(LOTS going on); I'm curious if my example has the same problem as well. I'm a beginner, and though I think I understand the instructions, I'm wondering if anyone can post any close ups of the procedure. I'd really like to get this right the first time.

I just checked all the parts.....I did not see any brackets. I'll check again, and if I find otherwise, I'll re-post.

Hang in will be well worth it!

Let us know when yours arrives.

Take care,

Friday morning, I received a call which made my year.  Waiting for pickup was a Green #455 K-27.

I concur with Roger's post on the packing...excellent.  A suggestion was made to me concerning UNpacking. First get the cab end out a little , then scoop your arm under the loco, and lift,  it will pop out of the packaging fairly easily.

I am totally blown away by this loco. Detail is excellent, paint and lettering sharp. This version included a spark arrestor and various other parts (I have a bag of two small black discs as well).

My project for today is to oil her up and have a little fun.  It was worth the wait!

Happy New Year to all,

Thanks for the info!

Hopefully good things will come to those who wait.

I've been impressed so far with the 1:20.3 offerings......keep 'em coming!

Two questions: First, the green boiler K-27. Is the boiler darker than the picture posted in the photo gallery? I'm not complaining.....I pictured a different shade of green.

Second: I was told today by my retailer that his original shipment of 50 K-27's is now only going to be 20; I will not be one of the 20.  I was also told that this is an issue that other retailers will face as well. Can you confirm or deny this statement?
