Dear Mr. Bachmann:

On the large scale boards there are now several postings of adults improving the details on these locos.
It is nice to see Bachmann once again offering entry level product pricing locos.
The molded on bell is now the correct scale size ( as compared to the oversized bell of the Indy )

I am hoping that Bachmann will use the Columbia ( the Indy loco ) molds to produce additional Little Hauler locos.

A 2-4-4T or 0-4-4T Little Hauler loco would be most appreciated !

Prototypes to chose from:

   Chloe 0-4-2T ( three foot gauge ), Fairymead 0-4-2T ( two foot gauge ),
  T.V.R.R. J.M. BLAIR 0-4-4T ( three foot gauge ), Visalia RR 2-4-4T ( standard gauge ),
  Disneyland RR No. 5 2-4-4T ( three foot gauge ), WW&F 0-4-4T loco No.1 ( two foot gauge )

The 1:22.5 Bachmann Porter stack lined up with the steam cylinders.
The Little Hauler stack does not line up with the steam cylinders.
Can this be corrected for the next run?


Thank you,
Norman

PS Hopefully some green J&S DRGW cars are in the future?

For them to move the stack is a major change. Probably not going to happen. Looks like you will need to move it. Does't look like a major problem for kitbashing.
