Thanks.  That was so helpful.  It is a single drive pancake motor with tabs on either side of the fuel tank.  However, now that I have opened it up, I made a rookie mistake and didn't take a picture of the motor and wiring.  While handling the motor, 2 red wires broke loose from where they belong.  The explosion diagram only shows 2 leads coming from the printed circuit board. In my photos below, I am trying to remember what Wire #1 and Wire #3 connect to.

My friend had a Bachmann 2-6-6-2 that instantly and mysteriously disappeared about 10 years ago.   They have never been able to find it.  Likewise for a kitbashed flatcar for me.

One of these days I'm going to find the box with the 'Flat Bottom' body I started bulding a while back to convert a GG-1 into a New Haven EP-3.

Today is like Christmas but it has nothing to do with a stimulus. Cheesy
For my Bachmann old time 4-4-0, I was hunting for another Santa Fe passenger car to go with my 4 Santa Fe shorties because I wanted at least a 5 car passenger train. I couldn't find another Santa Fe one anywhere.
I went out to the garage and brought in a box that had some Muir Model and other building kits. I removed those from the box that I brought in and, in the bottom of that box, I found 5 old time Concor Santa Fe passenger cars that I had never taken out of their boxes - Baggage, combine and 3 coaches. I didn't know I even had them. I now have my 5 car Santa Fe passenger train. Cheesy

Thank you Loco Bill!

I did read your post but I am still somewhat confused. I've also looked at Bachmann's Online Store.

They have several chassis listed. My loco has a smoke stack switch hidden in the front but no directional switch. I use my controller for the direction switch. How will I know which chassis has the metal rods/valves?

Sorry for sounding so stupid.

Check out this link!:,30394.msg224039.html#msg224039

After reading it be sure to ask any questions you might have.  Buying a new chassis is still the best bet.  Unfortunately the Bachmann Online store is currently shut down due to the virus

Hey guys I am new here. I just purchased a Eastern Tennessee & Western set for $50 and it came with a Tech II controller, curved track, loco, tender, observation , coach, and 2 combine. I bought this knowing the gears were messed up. After reading on here it is a Version 2 (can move while not running). I would like to get this up and running for my 4 year old for his birthday or Christmas.

I would like to buy a new entire chassis but not sure which one to purchase that will fit my model. I would like one of the ones with metal rods.

Can anyone help? Sorry if this question has been answered before.

I sent you an email Sid if you are interested in these Muir Models kits I have. I got them in out of the garage and have pics.
