Dear Loco Bill, Teddy Y, and all,
    On a recent trip to Philly I managed to snag a paint sample (painted/ unlettered, not much of a paint sample!)
of the new 10 Wheeler.
     Here are a few pictures I took on the Sterling Mountain and Hudson.
I can tell you, on a downgrade, it ran with absolutely no gear noise!  Of course, this was because, as a paint sample, there are no gears or motor installed!
     You can, however, see the new tooling.  Please note that many detail parts (couplers, etc.) are missing.
The loco, detail-wise. is basically the same; the changes are internal.
     The new (expensive!) tooling is on the tender.  Note the smaller rivets, wood grain detail, scale trucks and wheels, coal load,
metal ladder and stirrup steps, etc.
     I think the new street price will compare very favorably with the Barry's Big Train price of twenty years ago, making this the best buy in a Large Scale steam loco!
     I plan on adding three!

Here's the link, thanks to Inside Track:

Have fun!
the Bachman

The Bachman,
 Thank You! Many have been waiting on the detail shots of the new tender. Now, we wait for the two Rio Grande paint version photos Smiley Can you give us any more arrival info?
Happy Rails To You,

Much nicer, although I don't see the socket inside, so probably the non-motorized unit you saw, no electronics.

Hey, Greg!
Yes, it was completely empty fore and aft.
When I get an operating sample I'll take more pictures.
Best,

It looks awesome! It does, however, look very much like your On30 4-6-0, which is no longer in production.
I own 2 of the On30 4-6-0's(ET&WNC),and they're great little engines.
Why were they discontinued?
Can't wait to add  this new large scale 4-6-0 go my ever growing train collection!

Hey Bach-man,
 'April Fool's Day' has passed. Give us some photos of the painted Rio Grande versions! Maybe even updated arrival dates.
Happy Rails To You,

I am also seeing a pin instead of the hook and loop coupler.  What's the drawbar look like?  That's a change, yes?

Tender looks a lot nicer than the old BH version!

Mark,
  The C-19 uses the pin with drawbar. Works well (two holes for close coupling and wider spaced coupling between loco and tender). Looks like the trucks are from the C-19 as well. Waiting for painted loco photos for sure! Hopefully SOON!

Ted,

Very nice!! Departing from that hook to a loop, seeming based on the mid 80s practice, is great! I have an LGB 2017D that had that style coupler.  I used a keychain ring to semi-permanently couple them together.
