Hi,

I recently bought a Bachmann HO Single Truck Birney but it is too small to fit on Atlas Code 100 HO track.  Too small as in the wheels of the Birney don't reach both sides of the track.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is this not actually an HO model?

Thanks!

Either the wheels are out of gauge or the model is actually N scale. Most likely you purchased a smaller scale model, HO scale is 1:87th I believe.

What did the package say?  Did you keep the data sheet?
