Patrick you mentioned one engine the 45 ton diesel. That was sold out because Backmann dumped them cheap because they did not sell I bought one when they first came out for $200 several years latter I got 2 more for $60 each So being sold out does not mean it was a good seller.

Guys the 45 tonner did not sell well when released. A lot of people felt they were too large for most layouts as they are wide in 1:20.3 scale.They were dumped on the market at very cheap prices I bought my first one for $200 later I got two more for $60 each. I doubt that it would be rereleased. But I do not speak for Bachmann just what I saw happen when they were first released.

Ray if you only have two wires and the tender light does not work those wires are for the cam for chuff sound The wires are from engine only and the tenders do not have pick ups so you do not have to hook them up

Bill first run had 8 screws second had 6 screws on the outside and 2 more inside when the 38 ton came out it had die cast trucks with 4 screw
Bachmann still puts the plastic 6 screw trucks on the older version or 36 ton shay and the die cast with 4 screws on the 38 ton and the 55 ton shay The replacment trucks sold seperatly are die cast 4 screw trucks
