Assisting my elderly neighbor set up their Christmas Village for the up coming Holiday. Yea....I know....Little by little!
They have a starter set of the Moonlight or Wolf train and needed to find an Observation car to complete the set.
The car with the lit 'drum head' on one of the end platforms. Was there ever one made? If so, is there a part number I can continue searching for or might you have one for sale? MANY THANKS in advance for your time!
Wes
P.S.: The set is: HAWTHORNE VILLAGE by BACHMANN, MOONLIGHT EXPRESS

It is fairly easy to hook up the phoenix sound board to a 2-6-6-2.

Connect the 1st chuff input to the locomotive Chuff Trigger 1 (J1 pin 5)  and the phoenix chuff ground to the locomotive ground (J1 pin 7)

If you want a cool effect  have a function output on your control board power a relay that is connected to the phoenix second chuff trigger and the locomotive Chuff Trigger 2 (J2 pin 2)

Note the locomotive connections on on solder pins on the side of the board.

The 2-6-6-2 is a compound mallet. This means that the steam exhaust from one set of cylinders is fed to the input of the second set of cylinders which is then exhausted up the stack.  This provided 4 chuffs per wheel revolution.

To gain maximum tractive effort the engineer can switch from compound mode to simple mode on startup.  Normally simple mode is used below 5 mph and compound mode above 7 mph.  Simple mode will provide 4 chuffs from the rear engine and 4 chuffs from the front engine going into and out of sync

Using the relay for the second chuff imput allows you to simulate this effect.

Hope this helps

Stan

Check The Parts, Service and Informations page for the 2-8-0.

Without parts diagram for 11411 you are using ASSUME to use HO BALDWIN 2-8-0 CONSOLIDATION DCC READY - Series 836xx is DCC Ready.



Whoa forget above as it is not what I said (I am using voice recognition software).

Use the following,

I figured so but he did say DCC ready.
If he opens the tender and sees an eight pin socket and the two cables connecting the loco and render I would assume ready for a decoder.
It might even have the DC adapter in the socket.
A couple Bachmann locos I ordered some years ago had the adapter in the socket.
He could even call the Parts department.

Good Day folks,

I have a simple question about Bachmann HO 2-8-0 Union Pacific 721 (Stock # 11411).

Is this loco DCC ready out of the box?

Thanks in advance for your replies -- Best,  Doug Andrews

At the NMRA Show I was told they would ship early December.
Thanks for responding. I had a small feeling that'd be the case since Rheneas was released within the same month two years back.

Does anyone have any particular idea on when the Narrow Gauge coaches will ship? TrainWorld says preorders are due in two weeks, but chances are it may not be an accurate shipment date.
