1  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Replacing the Cylinder Assembly for a two truck shay on: July 23, 2019, 03:19:07 PM
I have 2 3 truck Shays. G scale. The first one I bought about a year ago maybe a little more. This one broke the crankshaft right by the coupling to the 3rd truck. When I removed the 3 cylinders set. I took out the 2 tiny screws that Dave Goodson talked about. The cylinders more or less fall out. Seeing how Bachmann had completely missed lining up the tabs on the inside above the fire box cover. I called Bachmann Tech support asking if they would sent me a new cylinder setup since I am sure that the crankshaft broke from not having those tabs aligned and tight. I sent pictures on a second attempt to get a new set. Bachmann tech declined my request.
I bought another 3 Truck Shay about a month ago and decided to check the inside tabs. It was the same way as my first. WRONG, WRONG WROBG!!! I reversed the tabs and tightened the cylinder down. Now it doesn't move. I would say that anyone with a Shay should check out what I found and fix it if you wish.

Does anyone know how to remove the number plate that is on the front at the smoke box. Switches are behind it. I tried a heat gun. That warped the cover some. Didn't move the number plate. I then tried drilling it out. I got it out but was a very messing out come for the hatch cover. I have a number 5 badge now but I am afraid to try and remove the one from my good hatch.

Thank you

Does anyone know if I can take the decoder board out of a G scale Climax and install it in a C-19 G scale. This would be to get DCC sound and power for the C-19

Thank you

Hi - I sent you a picture of the gears to your email address. I tried to upload it here but the board says the upload folder is full. If you have any questions I'll try to answer.

Yup, I know what you mean. It seems odd to me that most company's make a product for a time then discontinue them. Never to return. Something like the rail truck would sure seem attractive to lots of model railroaders in today's world. I know the first time I saw the rail truck I had to have one.

Hi - Would anyone have the pinion gear for a Bachmann G scale rail Truck? Or I guess for that matter a complete rear end?

Thanks superdog404

Hi - Does anyone have or know of a Balloon Smoke Stack for the 3 Truck Shay G scale. For that matter I think any G scale Shay would fit. There was an accessory kit that came with a couple smoke stack and some parts. That would great also.

Thank you

Anyone know where to get a drive belt for this handcar? I called Bachmann parts etc. and they referred me to this forum. It is very small maybe 1/32" wide. I'm not sure how long.

Thank you
