Thanks.  I'll have to tear them down and find out what each one actually needs.

I guess I picked the wrong four years to take some time off from trains.

I should probably send them the one I bought new last week.....

is bachmann still providing them as free replacements?  I literally bought the one of the railtrucks last sunday.  I didn't realize bad units were still out there and thought anything still in dealer inventory would be problem free.

Is it still possible to get replacement gears?

I'm just getting back into the hobby again and I have some engines (rail
 Trucks) including 1 I just bought last weekend that just sit and spin....

I emailed the support email address and did not hear back.

Thanks.

I wonder if the attendance was down because the weather was good.....First weekend for vegetable planting, etc.

Bob,

I hope the Bachmann doesn't take the guys at the conspiracy too seriously, they'd complain if their ice cream was cold.  I got tired of listening to the "where is it?" "why does it cost so much?" "How come it won't go around a 9" radius"........If there weren't so many good modelers on that list (the silent faction) I'd never check it out.  Thank god for Railroad-Line!

My only issue with the drivers is I bought one off ebay and paid about $15 more than I would have for a non metallic driver version so I wouldn't have to mess with painting the running gear. 

BTW, very nice picture of my other OF280 on your Kimberton update.  This mechanism is going on the passenger version of that engine...

Scott, The existing drivers seem to be plated in a darker metal sceme.  The only option would seem to be painting....

Here is the picture from the catalog.  It's the undecorated, red trim.

If a mistake why is it the catalog shot?

I have heard that they may have discontinued it....but don't know for sure, hence the post.

Thanks for the try but The one I just purchased is an original Bachmann, green box, unopened matching serial numbers but No silver counterweights.  I'm afraid they may have disontinued that part of the paint scheme.  Secondary vendors have just been using bachmann catalog pictures on their website and won't reflect currect production practices.

In the Bachmann catalog the Baldwin Outside Frame 2-8-0 Consolidation
Item No.:   25998  Road name:   Painted Unlettered - Black with Red & White Trim is shown with metallic counterweights.  Is this item still produced this way, perhaps with a different item number?  I recently ordered one and received it without the metallic drivers.  I really want the metallic counterweights..

Thank you,

Dave

I should have mentioned the HO scale one....

We would like to combine two of them into an ore bin fed by a tram.
