its a diesel, 6 wheel trucks, British, sorry, but very generic.

And you feel able to put my choice down because?

Hmmm.

With the greatest of respect, nothing touches one of these Grin

Just a quick word. Phoned Bachmann and the part arrived the other day. Fitted and all OK.

THANKS Grin

Daft question number one. Will the replacement part fail? i.e. is the failure part of a bad batch with for example, damp in the plastic.....OR is it a design fault and should I take the kindly given advice above? Sorry if this is old ground but I ve had a look around and found nothing.....

Hello.
I am the owner of several Consolidations and very pleased I am with them too. I bought them in the knowledge that they have their niggles, qualitywise. To date, the only problem I have had with them is the leading bogie....er...truck bolster breaking on the tender. THis is pitifully weak mechanically. Anyway, one failed and I wrote to Bachmann(UK) using the online form. A few days later a replacement appeared FOC, excellent.. Now a few months later, one has failed on another machine. So I wrote off again. Three times. Nothing.

Bach-mann, is it possible for you to help me? I have a locomotive in the dead pool for the sake of a part costing less than a Dollar. Ive tried super gluing it together but the plastic just crumbles.

Thanks anyway.

Jon,
Thanks for the reply....Yep.... with you regarding the offset couplings.
But then....the couplings will be too low for all the other 1:20.3 stuff.
Sorry, I didn't make that clear in the first post. I have other 1:20.3 stock and I wanted to couple them up with the higher couplings.......Is it time to get the toolkit out and attack the mining wagons?

Evening all,
Just a quick question or two for the Bachmann or someone in the know.
If the mining wagons(92502/3) are 1:20.3, why are the couplings at the same height as the 1:22.5 vehicles?
Given that the coupling height of my Davenport is approx. 1/4" higher than the wagon, how reliable will that be?
Is there a fix that will bring the wagon coupling up to the correct height?
Perhaps a batch of UPWARD offset couplings?
Thanks for your help and Happy New Year everyone.
Cheers
John

I got the first of my two a while ago. They're fine locos!

Have a look here for running qualities:

I used WD40 on the track just as an interim, the locos I usually use dont seem to care about dirty track, but these did. So I cleaned it properly a week or so later.

How come we in England got them before you in the USA?
Tis usually the other way round surely?

Hello. I wonder if anyone can help me. Im looking to buy one of these moguls but I dont want to get caught out with an old version. I know that the 4-6-0 "Big Hauler" locomotives have five or six different versions with improvements with each. Do the 1:20.3 2-6-0s have a similar development lineage? If so how do I tell? Thanks for any help you can give me.
Cheers,
John.
