Why didn't Bachmann make a 2-6-6-2 with the original Milan olive green and silver colour scheme for the Ingenio Agelina sugarmill?
I know it are lean times for business but it would make an already stunning locomotive even more stunning.

Thanks , it clear to me now.
essentially a speaker coil with magnet and you use the body of the loco as speaker cone.

This one is for the bach man or anyone who knows.
I have a 2-6-6-2 with tsunami sound.
What type of decoder is installed? like light steam or medium steam.
and how do i get fireman fred to start his job , at this moment he seames to be on strike!
I tried setting cv 201 to 255 and cv 148 to 128 but no reply.
Or is fred not employed on this decoder?
i have several soundtraxx tsunamies, i installed myself and fred's clones are working their BEEP BEEP of!

I bought a 2-6-6-2 from the favorite spot a few months ago for somewhat more than half quoted price , so that made me verry happy.
It runs beautifully and the tsunami sound is perfect.
The only "problem" i had is finding fireman fred.
He seemes to be on vacation! Grin

Thanks Bachmann!

out of the blue i received a pleasant surprise.
A brand new railtruck as spare parts for my limping goose.
After the transplant of the chassis it is running much better than it did before.
there is still a tick in the gearbox , but it is much better then before.
The wobble is gone.
Thanks again for the excelent service.

it is pure the last small gear of the gearbox next to the motor.
I know because i did some extensive surgery on the offending gearbox and had a look with a magnifiing glass. it's about 0.25 of an inch small.
The problem it that the gear was attached to the moulding tree at that spot and they had to make space for the tree the wrong way.
The "differential"gear is ok
The driven wheels are also ok exept from a bit of wobble.

does anyone have problems with running the goose?
I have.
Lately i bought two rail trucks and when driven moderately slow to slow they don't run smooth.
After extensive surgery i discovered that the gearbox is the problem.
The last cog , connecting to the driveshaft, is not uniformly shaped.
two teeth are further appart then the rest.
probably due to the injection mould.
Is this problem known to Bachmann?
And if yes, what is Bachmann going to do about it.
