1  Discussion Boards / Large / Annie 4-6-0: lost main rod to driver screw/pin, anyone know size? on: August 01, 2010, 07:53:04 PM
The screw attaching mainrod to side-rod/driver on an Annie 4-6-0 has been lost during a run on my friend's railroad.  He's expecting company end of this next week and is desparate for a fix.  I suspect this is a unique shouldered screw.  Does anyone know the thread size for this?  With screw/thread size, perhaps a temporary fastener can be improvised while Bachmann sends a replacement.  He may pull the screw out of the other side of the locomotive, but with fine threads like that it's hard to determine size by looking at it visually.
Any tip might put us in the right direction.

Thanks, Dennis

This is pretty interesting.  I see one photo on Bachmann's opening web page....anyone have more photos posted anywhere??

Who has these at good prices now?  I've just begun to look, but I can tell I need one.

Thanks everyone.  That should do it.  I actually know the difference between the front/rear lamps, I was just asleep when writing. 

 Mackers, thank you for the thoughtful commentary.

Merry Christmas everyone,

Thank you.  It's probably worth a try for me, then, to buy a pair of LED's and attempt to get some that will emit light to the side.  These will be for marker lights that only have a front opening, so illuminating 4 sides is not necessary. 

I'd still like to see more comments on what load that might place on the headlight circuit, and any paritular wiring requirements that might be needed other than the obvious hookup.  i.e., perhaps I should NOT wire the LED's in series.

Thanks, Rich.  And I understand the advantages of an LED, however, I'm not sure what to order and from where. 

I suppose the Connie headlight is 12-18V in value, unless it's stepped down by the circuit board.

I'm doing my first modifications on my Bachmann, "Connie."  I have moved the headlight up where I want it and have Colorado style marker lamps to install on the smokebox.  The markers are plenty large enough to illuminate with some style of grain-of-wheat lamps.  Can anyone tell me what voltage and style of bulb to order?  I don't know what voltage the headlight is.  I would like to use the headlight power feed to power the markers.  I am also thinking of wiring the markers in series to produce a softer color or glow, then tie them to the headlight feed.  Will the circuitry in the Connie support such an add on?

I don't want to overload a circuit board with excessive power draw.  Tips would sure be appreciated as I'd like to do this right the first time.

Thanks.  I found it.

Have new Large Scale, "Connie," and want to get things going right.  I understand some of the Loctite requirements for counterweights and motor, but have never disassembled one of these.  Someone said that, "TOC," had nice instructions available. 

Where do I go for this?

Thanks, Dennis
