Yes, that should do it. A place like Trainworld will consolidate their pre-orders, and maybe a few more for stock, and pass that to the manufacturer.i pre ordered from Trainworld.....that should do it?.....right? I think Tony's Xchange says will arrive 2020....but i read someplace else it is only a survey to see if there is a demand for them.
You might want to look again, Bachmann makes different versions of the ten-wheeler. The one you probably saw is the low boiler with the short tender. They also have another version in the same number sequence that is a high boiler and larger tender. Also for consideration, their current line is cheaper, but of lower detail. If you have some patience, you can find the Spectrum line on ebay which are more detailed but no longer produced (I have a pair of these in the low boiler version and they're good crawlers). Both lines also have unpainted versions in case you want to do your own custom line. They are also offered with DCC already installed but I opted to install my own Tsunami 2 decoders in them (a very tight fit in the smaller tender, so I ripped out the interface board and wired up the decoder directly).Yup.....Bachmann' small engines are quite nice....but they date from the early 1900's i am hoping for something about 20 years newer....i do have the Bachmann engines and enjoy them.
Thanks M.D. I have looked for them from a couple of places and the Consolidation does not seem to be available. I have seen the reviews and they do look good.
As a kid I rode the NP down to Colfax, behind a 4-6-0 mixed trainI entered the hobby in HO a long time ago. My railroad was modest and i enjoyed assembling engine kits especially the midsized engines offered by Roundhouse and Bowser. They were great because the ability to transverse small radii without out looking silly and they did not over power the layout and they could pull.
I got into Large Scale for a long time, but i have moved into a smaller house.....thus back to HO....and a mid sized layout...
Looking for motive power and everything is now big to huge engines! What happened to the demand for the smaller 2-6-0's, 4-6-0's 2-6-2's, Atlantics,etc. There are consolidations....an abundance of them....but that is about it. If you model the 1870's Bachmann has its American.....But what has happened to the short line stuff of the 1920's to the 1950's? Does every one have huge layouts or belong to a large club?....just an observation. I love a 4-6-0....all railroads used to have them!
