1  Discussion Boards / Williams by Bachmann / Jerry Williams on: November 02, 2016, 11:36:36 AM
We are sad to inform everyone of the passing of Jerry Williams.  

Jerry was a major contributor to the growth of the O Gauge industry.  He recently was elected to the Model Railroad Hall of Fame by the Hobby Manufacturers Association.  Staring from humble beginnings, Jerry established Williams Reproductions limited in 1971. Initially focusing on reproductions of hard to find tinplate trains, Jerry later introduced some iconic scale model steam locomotives to the O Gauge market for the first time.  Although Williams Reproductions Limited was never the biggest company in O Gauge, Jerry’s vision and competition forced other companies to raise their standards.  Additionally, many of today’s train manufacturers have benefited from the experience that they learned while working with Jerry.  These include Mike Wolf and Andy Edleman of MTH, Ken Silvestri of Broadway Limited, and Larry Harrington of Bachmann Industries. He should be credited with the birth of Hi-Rail and recognized as a major reason for the size of the O Gauge market today.

Here are links to videos of the Jupiter and Union Pacific 119 straight out of the box. They seem fine to us.
If anyone out there has any problems with one of these locomotives they can contact our service department who will be happy to take care of any problems.

It is actually both limits.  You cannot send a message to more than 5 recipients and you cannot send more than 5 per hour.  If 5 is not high enough what do you suggest? You don't want SPAM; increasing the number could result in more SPAM in personal messages.

The captcha setting is based on post count (which we don't use) so it will be required every time.

The Captcha is active for new users accounts.  We have also started using a module that does not allow known spammers to create accounts.  It checks several things and blocks the registration  if there are any matches in the Spam database. We have blocked many since it has been turned on.

Dear All,

We have looked at some additional options on the message feature.  (By the way, it works now because we upgraded to the current version of the software.) The software does not offer the option of putting the messages in a holding area, but we did turn on the report to moderator feature.  This works just like reporting a post. So if you get any sort of Spam, just report it and we will ban the user.

We have also limited the number of recipients to 5 and maximum personal messages to 5 per hour.

Let's try it like this for now and see what happens.  It seems like most people would like to keep this feature on.

If you do not see it listed, we do not have it at this time.

We will continue to add parts for other scales as we sort, count, and photograph them.

Thank You

8  Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.s) - READ ONLY FORUM / DCC / Why won't my DCC ready locomotive respond to my DCC controller on: November 06, 2009, 01:01:44 PM
DCC ready means that the model's motor is isolated from the frame of the locomotive so that a DCC decoder can be inserted between the power pickups and the motor leads without shorting out the decoder. Some models are equipped with a socket to accept a "plug in" decoder.

Oops, indeed. There was a mix-up in our marketing department that somehow eluded us . . . a revised version of the ad with corrected tonnage (55) has already been submitted to Garden Railways for their next run.

The erroneous ad will appear in other magazines for one run only, to be replaced with material promoting another Bachmann product. We apologize for the confusion and appreciate your understanding and support!

Best regards,
Bachmann Industries, Inc.
