Ted, Group,

If PNP Big Hauler 4-6-0 is acceptable to most members, then lets agree to start using it to keep things consistent when we refer to it. 

If it does have firebox flicker, that would be a great way to identify the new PNP Big Hauler 4-6-0 when a power source is available.  So if anyone can confirm it please do so and I will add it to the ID info. 

Bach-man, Inside Track, members, can you confirm??


I do not have a new 4-6-0 in hand but FYI

Features include
load-synchronized LEDs in firebox and ashpan for realistic
 fire glow
complete backhead detail including operating firebox door

from manual

an aside,
The majority of the time, if used,  Bachmann Trains uses BIG HAULARS not BIG HAULAR

Thanks for the confirmation on the led flicker in the firebox and ashpan.  Probably the best ID feature will be the new Back head with opening firebox door.  I will update  the ID info  with this tomorrow. Thanks for your help on this.  Bill

I agree, that and possibly the multi pin connection between the loco and tender.

I like it has the optical chuff sensors in it now, synchronizing the chuffs exactly will be a breeze, no more unreliable physical contacts.
