The Bach-man,
The anticipation is now notched up a few degrees! Send me one down and I will run it for the pretour for the convention May 29!
Happy Rails To You,
Teddy Y.
PS-you would be welcome at my pretour, might even treat you to some southern BBQ:)

Dear Teddy, Loco Bill, and all,
I've been told they have sailed today!
We will have flown-in production models at the Garden Railways Convention in Nashville, 
and all things being equal (shipping delays at ports-of-entry are now common) I hope they'll
be at your dealers' by the end of June.
I can't wait to get mine!
the Bach-man

Hi everyone - New member and my first post here.  Can anyone inform me what the minimum radius the On30 2-6-2 Baldwin Trench Loco will comfortably run around.  Currently I have an 18” radius on my layout.  I live in Australia and wanting to order one from the States – it’s a long trip back to the store if it doesn’t work on my layout

While watching the ammeter on your command station, what does it read when the loco does its random stops?

Back to what Jeff said about the decoder going into thermal shutdown, I would run the loco and pay close attention to what current it is drawing. If it is near the one amp rating of the decoder before it randomly stops then it would appear there is something causing current draw to increase.

It would then be binding maybe.  Very weird issue for sure.

The only other thing I have heard of causing stuff like this is when another throttle has the address of the loco in it and the two throttles fight over control.

The DCS52 reports amps at the control station to JMRI. When on the upgrade, train motion stopped, but drivers turning, the reported amps are 0.4 to 0.5. The decoder in the loco is rated at 1 amp.

must admit that over the past couple of years Bachmann has ''pulled' their sock's up , and improved their train's otherwise they would have been out of business .
