1  Discussion Boards / Large / 1:20.3 0-4-0 Side Tanker - Seeking Prototype Information on: January 31, 2011, 03:16:06 PM
I'd like to find out more about the prototype, particularly  "year(s) of manufacture".  A websearch has revealed that that nine 0-4-0s and 165 0-4-0Ts went to Italy near/after the end of WW1 (aka "The Great War")  Were some if not all of them just like this model's prototype ?
Second question :although this one is 45mm gauge (= 3ft), were any made for 2 ft gauge ?
2  Discussion Boards / Large / None existent User Instructions/Guide - Spectrum 0-4-0 Side Tank Porter on: December 24, 2010, 11:10:52 AM
 I just bought a brand new O-4-0 Spectrum Porter (82599) and am surprised that an Instruction Book/User Guide was not in the  Box. In an earlier thread the omission of such Information (in the form of a DVD) DVD is apparently 'normal' according to the "Bach-man".     
Can the loco be run straight out of the box ? Or does it need to be lubricated first (and occasionally thereafter?)  An explanation (for novices to Large Scale models - myself for instance) about the Polarity Switch would also be appreciated.
(I assume the "Large Scale" position is for conventional Control, the other for DCC ?)

A fine model.... but I don't want to wreck it out of ignorance !
