5  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / bachmann ho layout on: April 15, 2013, 04:26:49 PM
Howdy, I have just re-done my 4' x 8" HO layout and did some additions to my original.  For some reason, I am having great difficulty keeping the Santa Fe and UP locos with the  trains behind them, and keeping them from derailing.  I have (2) separate tracks set up, as well as (2) power controllers.....Before I changed the layout around, I used the BrightBoy "lightly" on both the wheels and the tracks, just to clean them up.  I had the original layout set up for 2 years, and did not experience these continuous derailments....of course, I now wish I would have just let it alone, but I wanted a different design....I did make sure the 4' x 8' boards were level...hmmm.  Also, on the layout before I changed it, I could run the trains at high power without derailing, just for fun of course, and now, even at 1/2 speed, I run into issues...any suggestions?....thanks in advance...".frustrated in Seattle.."
6  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / switching from dc to bachman ez command on: April 11, 2013, 04:57:13 PM
Howdy, and thanks for the scenery replies.  I am also going to switch my DC to the Bachmann DCC EZ command. Is this going to be a pain for me?  I am leary of doing something that will be very confusing to me, and a bit of on the "timid" side to do something new with my DCC equipped Locos.  What problems may I run into before I get started ?  I like everything to be easy and in order....thanks in advance ")

Spring is finally here and time to switch my Bachmann layout to a Spring theme.  Just wondering, should I lay out the tracks and train first, or should I set my new Scenery up first.  I have more buildings, etc for Spring, and do not want to get it halfway done and then have to take it down...just saying...I will have 2 tracks running, one with Bachmann HO Santa Fe, and the other Bachmann UP....thanks in advance for your help

I must say I had "great" service from Bachmann on the return of a brand new Loco to me for replacement and get this, it was in January, one of their busiest times, and it only took a month, good job !!!  Anyway, I had also enclosed a plastic bag of parts and asked them to respond to me what these parts were.  There were some track connectors and other wire "stuff."  These were not returned, most likely lost.  So, does anyone out there no what these parts would be, so I can order some before I set my layout up?  I have already ordered the track connectors, and they shipped within a week, once again, fabulous service.

Howdy, just received a replacement Loco from Bachmann, but I had also sent a small bag of some kind of parts, metal things and track connector type things, at least that is what they looked like, and they must have been lost in the "shuffle."  I sent them back because I did not know what they were for and wanted them to let me know.  I noticed my track is a bit loose as the train runs around it...makes me think the could have been connectors of some sort.  Anyway, will just order some more if anyone can let me know what they are and if Bachmann carries them...thanks in advance.

Thanks Sleeping Bear, will drag my set out of storage and set it up.  Thanks for correcting me on the "Pilot/Truck..instead of wheels...been collecting for a year and a half...and never knew what a consistently ongoing Hobby this would be...always a-changing...

Just received a replacement Loco from Bachmann, thanks for your fast, efficient service.  Anyway, before I set up my track, just wondering about the wheels, or whatever they are called on the Loco.  They are kind of on a piece of metal and swivel back and forth...is that right?  Tried to upload a pic, but uploader was full..thanks in advance.

What are the best track cleaners from Bachmann/Willams for HO.  Also, what is the difference in the black and gray track, is one better than the other?  Thanks
13  Discussion Boards / HO / HO power packs and tracks on: February 04, 2013, 04:59:27 PM
I have a Bachmann HO Santa Fe set and 2 other Bachmann sets, and have a total of 3 Bachmann power packs, (that came with the sets).  How many trains can I run per track, or should I have a separate track for each set ??  Will I lose power if I run more than one set on a track.  thanks

Howdy..I just purchased this transformer and am now wondering if it will work with my HO track.  I have 2 other "regular" Bachmann transformers/powerpacks, or whatever they are callled...I am still new at this.  Can I use this, and I guess what my question is, is, what do I do with it now?  I have 2 HO EZ tracks set up...just wondering...Also, what is the difference in a transformer and a power pack ? Smiley thanks Smiley

Thanks, I am relatively new to Model Trains, and I am just full of questions....I do not want to spend money unwisely... and good one.....no, not like a slot car, just   tad bit faster so my cat can chase it on my layout...and I am not kidding Smiley
