Here's the difference in bodies between the new Climax (left, oil fired) and the old one.....

Being UK based, I use PECO G-45 track - the rail profile is less, giving what I think is a more realistic look, although the ties are all evenly spaced and of even lengths which is a shame for a supposed narrow gauge road.

Thanks guys - you know me, the main concern was that it has metal trucks Smiley

I have just bought one of these off Ebay - the seller says it has the metal trucks.  Can someone please confirm that this model is indeed fitted with metal trucks and the new drive train ?

Many thanks

I agree Bob, that would be very nice (as long as it has metal gears  Grin Grin Grin Grin )

It would be nice if they re-introduced the saddle tank body for the 0-4-0.  I managed to get hold of one, and "modernised" it with an Aristocraft (?) slope=back tender, having seen at least one example of this being done.



Or another small loco for switching (or shunting, as we call it over here Smiley )

Thanks Guys Smiley  By the way Bill, I followed the info you gave me on deconstructing the Annie.  What a pig to get back together Grin

A superb, affordable model with metal gears, makes this a sought after loco on the Broome Lake & Eastern.  One has the body of a short C19 tender on the original tender chassis, the other is mated to the Consolidation tender (surplus because of the Conso gear problems)









Keep 'em coming, Bacchy, great models !!!!

As always - thanks Bill Smiley  I've actually sent for a different body, instead of bastardizing the cab.  It'll look much neater and match my  existing Annie Smiley

Bill, sorry to be a pain (again) but please could you tell me -  how does the body come off the chassis on the facelift Annie ?

Gentleman and Scholar applies to you, too, Bill Smiley

You are a Gentleman and a Schlolar (as we say over here) Yardmaster - thank you.  And please don't think I was having a go at Bachmann U S - they are the ones who have me embroiled in this superb hobby, following US Narrow Gauge Smiley

Please don't get me wrong Bill - but it's just that when I am told something, and find that it's not quite right, I have to question it Smiley

EDIT :  That is a brilliant link you sent, Bill - thanks so much.  I have a feeling that my problems may be solved.  The strength of feeling that may come across, is because I think the Conso is one of the very best models produced - ever.  And, as you can tell from my photos, I am a HUGE fan of Bachmann U.S.  Smiley

Bachmann U.K. and Bachmann U.S. do not sell each other's products. If you purchased it in the U.K. it must have been imported by a hobby distributor. In the same vein Bachmann U.S. does not sell or service Bachmann U.K. products. Two separate companies.....

I hate to disagree, Yardmaster, but please click on this link :

So surely they should offer to repair locos - I am not talking about under warranty, I would gladly pay to get the repair done (ie the replacement metal gears for the Conso)

Once again - thanks Bill Smiley

Took a bit of getting used to Bill - thanks for the comment Smiley

Indoors, a photoreal backdrop does it every time for me - except where it's not possible Smiley



I've changed the tender body on the Annie.
