The latest version of Bachmann's 0-6-0
runs pretty well, I'm told.

These have new can-motors,
and can be identified by the automatic couplers,
and not the Rapidos.


The old versions were not good runners.

Most on eBay are the old versions,
listed at the new price.

:f:

Today three HOn30 kits arrived from eBay.

These are from the dealer I mentioned above.
I had ordered a boxcar, a tank car, and a boxcar with open doors.

These are great little kits.
There is no flash, and the 3D-printed detail is well executed.

These little cars are tiny, I put a Q-tip in the photo for scale.
It is hard to see...

The tank car is a wooden tank sitting on a bulkhead flat.
A small detail is the hatch for above the filler neck.

The smaller of the boxcars has open doors,
doors are included.

I especially like the underframes.

I am hoping that eventually this dealer will make individual parts available.
To see these, go to HOn30 on eBay, and scroll down the list.

Re. Bachmann 0-6-0

Do you refer to the USRA switcher ?


I am not familiar with Bachmann N-scale,

but remember there was a 0-6-0T type also.

Gerold.

Yes, it is the 0-6-0 switcher with the slope back tender.

Be sure to get a new version, with the new motor.
The old ones ran poorly.

I just discovered that you can go to the seller's store via eBay.

All of his HOn30 and On30 items are offered.

Is there a way to tell the older version of Bachmann's 0-6-0 from the newer one ? 

Maybe a stock number ?

I'm going by the fact that the latest versions
have Micro-train style couplers instead of Rapidos.

Also close looking on eBay on the engines with the new and old couplers,
shows a big motor block sticking out back of the cab of engines with Rapidos.

I am told the newer versions have a can motor.
All this is determining how I tell the difference.

Here is a photo with the motor sticking out the cab.
Hopefully someone here can verify this.
