Your running the power cab is that dcc? If so the wires on the switch they recommend not screwing them together under the switch. How you like the power cab thinking of getting one?

as far as I know, Santa Fe kept all their f units. Amtrak got some from SOuthern Pacific but none from Santa Fe.

Does anyone know when the 2019 catalog will be released? Iím excited to see prototypes for the new HO items.

That was literally asked 2 post ago. Read the forum before asking questions as you may find the same question may already have been answered

Sorry. Must not have seen the last posts.

I think this was a quick way to get them out of the passenger pool when Amtrak took over.  I am sure that Santa fe took the best ones.

On the topic of characters in N Scale, I concur with TrainFan97 that it will take a while to make all the main characters in N Scale, but hopefully Bachmann will play their cards right and if they see an opportunity to reuse pieces like chassis and molds to get characters released quicker, they'll take it. Release Henry alongside Gordon. Release Mavis alongside Toby. Release Paxton alongside Diesel. Get more characters that the consumers want. Maybe I'm being too ambitious (I'm writing this post right before going to be rn) but I think that's what Bachmann can do to get this N Scale train rolling.

Releasing two engines that are capable of sharing a single chassis together is an ideal way to approach character creation. Gordon and Henry's HO models were both released in the same year, so I can see it likely happening again in the N Scale lineup. And if Mavis isn't the perfect partner to release alongside Toby, I pretty much don't know who is.

I had a similar problem with my Class J (also bought at an exhibition) and obtained a new harness from Bachmann. The original one seemed to be made with bare stranded wire covered in a sort of matt black paint - which had crumbled. IIRC, the replacement was with 'regular' insulated wires.
You may be having a similar issue.

Regards

Well to be fair the post before said last year it was on Monday after announcements and this was asked later on Monday. Cut the guy some slack. I think we are all eager to see the catalogue.

Nice photos, as an aside that is not a blue bonnet

This is a Blue Bonnet, and they have been made in HO scale too. There is also a yellow and gold bonnet in the same general scheme.

I'd call the one you pictured a blue bonnet. The freight bonnet was a rare creature but they did exist. They were painted in the blue and yellow freight colours similar to a hood type unit. There was no silver on a freight bonnet
