     In the past, Bachmann has been very good to us N scale C&O modelers... any chance of more N scale C&O transition era items coming, especially steam locomotives?

-  04-17-2021 04:04

     Any chance Williams will have a Siemens ACS-64 offering. Septa, perhaps?

Jon M -  04-17-2021 04:07
     Super iconic C&O engine: H-8 Allegheny  2-6-6-6! Could also be lettered for Virginian :)

TonyZ -  04-17-2021 04:08
     Thank you, understood. Keep up the good work

Wheatie -  04-17-2021 04:08
     Do you have replacement gears for older HO engines?

-  04-17-2021 04:09
     Hi Wheatie, here's our contact information for our parts department. estore.bachmanntrains.com. Email us at parts@bachmanntrains.com, or give us a call at 215-533-1600, ext. 727 (Mon-Fri 9-4 EDT)

Wheatie -  04-17-2021 04:10
     Is the Bachman large scale the same scale as "Garden"?

Wheatie -  04-17-2021 04:11
     What is the best software to use for designing an EZ-Track layout

Randy -  04-17-2021 04:11
     I have cars from multiple manufacturers and they have different couplers on them that don't always match up.  Which coupler system do you recommend I replace all mine with?

Dave J - BC Canada -  04-17-2021 04:12
     I've been getting product announcement emails from Bachmann for about 1.5 years now and I have yet to see any content about G gauge. Could you please explain why this is so ?

-  04-17-2021 04:13
     Hi Dave, we have more announcements in N and HO scales because they are our most popular items. We're working to expand our G scale lineup, and more announcements will come subsequently.

trainguy45 -  04-17-2021 04:14
     do you know when we will get pictures of bachmann daisy?

-  04-17-2021 04:16
     Hi Trainguy45, we hope to have a sample soon! We'll show it off as soon as we can.

Dave J - BC Canada -  04-17-2021 04:16
     Thanks for your replies...  I read the product emails all pretty much end to end and it makes me feel like G gauge (which has been struggling in hobby shops here in Canada - no one here in Vancouver has much of any selection any more ) needs positive vendor support.

Larry Harrington - Bachmann -  04-17-2021 04:19
     Dave J, you have to tell your vendors to carry more.  If they hear it often they will start listening.

Tom -  04-17-2021 04:21
     What set would you recommend in HO to get started? I have an 8x16' area that I can use. Thank you. Sorry for such a basic beginner question! Thanks for doing this!

JordanK4501 -  04-17-2021 04:26
     Is there any chance of doing the Baldwin modern 4-4-0 with TCS wowsounds?

Restoman -  04-17-2021 04:27

ConductorCody -  04-17-2021 04:35
     Hey Bachmann, I enjoy seeing your work in all your scales! My fav is O gauge, so I was wondering if there's any new developments with your Williams Trains line?

Tom -  04-17-2021 04:35
     Hello Moderator. There is so much great information with the two live videos. Will the video that's on the right screen right now be available later? Thank you.

Tom -  04-17-2021 04:44
     I know there have been many improvements to making mountains and tunnels and the old days where I used very heavy plaster has been replaced by something called plaster tape I think. What do you recommend that I should look at? And thanks a lot this is REALLY helpful!

Mmount -  04-17-2021 04:49
     Any info on the S70 Siemens release date?

Tom -  04-17-2021 04:50

Tom -  04-17-2021 05:01
     Larry, once the track planning book is back in stock in June, how are track elevations handled? Is this hard to learn how to do? Thank you again.

John -  04-17-2021 05:02
     Are you answering general how-to questions?

Randy Hein -  04-17-2021 05:03

     Thank you.

-  04-17-2021 05:05
     Mmount, we mentioned that we haven't started the project yet. We do one Siemens project at a time. First the SC-44, now the ALC-42. We'll give more updates as we have them.

Mmount -  04-17-2021 05:06
     Ok thank you

Dan Miller -  04-17-2021 05:14
     I’m looking into jumping into the hobby. Would you recommend starting with DC or is it okay to jump right to DCC?

John -  04-17-2021 05:14
     Just getting back into it and trying to go bigger than before.  HO  Concerns about power and engines pulling capacity.  I know the condition of the engines have a lot to do with this.   How powerful of transformers are available?  Most of mine are old and are 12 - 18 v output.   Does it make sense to run wires from the transformer to two different terminal tracks?  (1/2 way round)  Is there a specific gauge of wire that I should be using?

sbaker -  04-17-2021 05:15
     I have Minitrix 4-6-2 N scale steam loco.  It was running rough so I tried to clean the brushes and it broke.  I need to buy a new motor it is square shaped.     Can you help me

David -  04-17-2021 05:16
     What Gauge wire is a good choice for wiring an 8' x 6' HO layout?

John -  04-17-2021 05:17
     If I use two locomotives at once to pull a heavier load do they have to be from the same manufacturer?  Is it possible that they would work against each other?

John -  04-17-2021 05:22
     Do you still make "Williams by Bachmann"?

train fan 69 -  04-17-2021 05:24
     when will you make diesel 10

John -  04-17-2021 05:25
     Is it ok to mix brass and nickel silver track?   What is the longest configuration of wheels on a steam engine that will negotiate 18' radius curves?

-  04-17-2021 05:25
     Trainfan, No plans to make Diesel 10 right now.

Randy Hein -  04-17-2021 05:27
     Was there a reason why traction tires weren't put on the New York Central Hudson?  The pulling power on mine is disappointing.  Any plans for a Dreyfuss streamlined version?

train fan 69 -  04-17-2021 05:29
     when will you make g scale duck

-  04-17-2021 05:29

     I am building an ho scale transcontinental railroad layout at home. I have really nice HO scale 50' Pullman Old Time Union Pacific and Central Pacific overland cars made by Roundhouse Products, today known as Model Die Casting Inc.

B Kolya -  04-17-2021 06:07
     Therefore, I am very interested in and looking to soon someday buy your HO Scale Union Pacific and Central Pacific All New Tooling American Type 4-4-0s.

     Will you be doing the Charger locos in N-Scale?

PlaybyPlay225 -  04-17-2021 06:36
     Are there plans for any other future characters in that range?

-  04-17-2021 06:37
     Hi NickC, no plans for that model at this time. I will pass your suggestion along to the appropriate people. Thanks!

Charles Sloane -  04-17-2021 06:46
     Are there additional G Gauge trains in 1:29 scale like the Peter Witt streetcar (or plans for)?

noodle -  04-17-2021 06:47
     Can I purchase products from your website.Can you talk about the sound system on your O scale if you have one. thanks

PlaybyPlay225 -  04-17-2021 06:48
     Would Bachmann ever consider going a narrow gauge G-scale Thomas and Friends range? Presumably on O-gauge track. Also, if you did, would it be 2-rail, like most overseas O-gauge, or 3-rail, like most US O-gauge?

Teddy -  04-17-2021 06:48
     any plans for new schemes-such as D&RGW #168 running at Cumbres & Toltec or RGS 20 just restored at Zcolorsdo Railroad Museum?

Charles Sloane -  04-17-2021 06:48

PaulZ -  04-17-2021 06:48
     Is the DCC turnout controller only for a single turnout or will it control all turnouts.

-  04-17-2021 06:48
     Noodle, you can buy all of our products at shop.bachmanntrains.com.

NS6770Fan -  04-17-2021 06:54
     Would Bachmann consider updating the ES44AC tooling to have higher detail, separate grab irons, PTC, and more? These models have great potential but seem a bit behind in detail.

smalltimecruiser100 -  04-17-2021 06:57
     Does Bachmann have insulated rail joiners . I have a DC setup

NS6770Fan -  04-17-2021 07:06
     Are any more "super detailed" models like the SC44 and ACS64 planned? Also, will models such as these be marketed with DCC ready capabilities in the future?

NS6770Fan -  04-17-2021 07:09
     If DCC ready models could not be produced, is there a possibility of a "custom order" to have a model delivered with a competitor decoder brand, such as ESU instead of TCS?

     I’m new and trying to plan my track layout.  It I would like to make a yard layout with say 5 switches can I still control 8 locomotives or does the number of locomotives decrease when the number of switches reaches a certain point?

Kurt -  04-17-2021 07:33
     I missed your response to my question on CNW cars, sorry.

-  04-17-2021 07:34
     **Kurt** No specific plans for CNW right now.

Bremner  -  04-17-2021 07:34
     Any chance on updated shells for N Scale 0-6-0's to match the details of the locomotives that were released after 2003?

ted f -  04-17-2021 07:34
     Is the  DCC unit available for the first run of the N-Scale USRA 4-8-2 and how do I break into the tender to install it?

Dan Miller -  04-17-2021 07:36
     Perfect.  Thanks.  I was getting a little confused but that helps a lot!

CRSR2021 -  04-17-2021 07:36
     Is the Hickens oil tender still being produced?

Bremner  -  04-17-2021 07:39
     What I meant is the current 0-6-0 details are horrible. The mechanism is much improved.  The new steam locos since the Baldwin 2-8-0 have great details. Are you planning on making the 0-6-0 look better?

ted f -  04-17-2021 07:39
     The part number is 81665 for the 4-8-2

CRSR2021 -  04-17-2021 07:41
     The hickens oil tender says Southern Pacific white lettering on black body, 6-axle trucks, dcc ready board

-  04-17-2021 07:42
     **CRSR2021** we don't currently offer that

Sam Smetko -  04-17-2021 07:45

trainman -  04-17-2021 08:10
     how do you download the train photos from the show? It says free photos but when you go there it is not clear how to download. I tried to click on the pics, but that doesnt do anything. I am sure other train people would also like the info.  thanks

Bristol 78 -  04-17-2021 08:47
     At a couple of different spots my engine slows down would  I benefit need to go with Power booster power pack? I'm running a fairly large layout with the basic power pack

Tom -  04-17-2021 08:47
     Hi Larry. I'm sorry for these very basic questions, but when I was younger, the track that changed the path of the train was called a switch. Is that what it is called now or is it "a turnout"? And, when you buy the Thunderchief, for example, with the Bachmann track extender kit, do you purchase those special tracks separately and does the DCC control those too?

mike -  04-17-2021 08:49
     old school - switch....new school - turnout

BnDTrainRepair.com -  04-17-2021 08:49

Tom -  04-17-2021 09:05
     Larry, I hope this isn't boring to other people, but once I start out and it is going to be with Thunderchief + Extender Track Pack + DCC, what are the top things that a beginner makes for mistakes that I should make sure not to do? Just top of mind would be really helpful!

Randy -  04-17-2021 09:36
     Any plans to offer a diner in the N-scale smooth side and corrugated side side passenger cars?  We really need these to put together a complete train.

PlaybyPlay225 -  04-17-2021 09:36
     I wonder, continuing from my suggestion earlier, if you guys do the G-scale Narrow Gauge Thomas and Friends models, would they be 2-rail or 3-rail, or will there be a conversion kit or something included in with the locomotives? Just wondering, since most overseas countries use 2-rail O gauge, and the US mostly uses 3-rail.

-  04-17-2021 09:37
     **PlaybyPlay225** We cannot speculate as we have no plans for these items. Stay tuned for what is coming to our lineup!

Randy -  04-17-2021 09:37

Karichie -  04-17-2021 09:54
     I have an HO train set that I haven't had set up since I had kids (13 years).  It has about 4 diesel engines and 1 steam.  I ran it on DCC.  I want to eventually set it back up again.  What would you suggest when starting it back up? What types of changes could I expect? Sorry if this question seems open ended.. 😆

Karichie -  04-17-2021 09:59
     It was since I had kids 13 years ago.  

Karichie -  04-17-2021 10:01

Doug B. -  04-17-2021 10:02
     Do you have E-Z Track setups for a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood?

Tom -  04-17-2021 10:02
     As a beginner I am planning to buy the Thunderchief + Bachmann track extender package + DCC. What are some of the things beginners make as mistakes that I should make sure I don't do?

Joe  -  04-17-2021 10:04

Karichie -  04-17-2021 10:04
     Does Bachmann have any good turntables?  I was looking into a good one before I put mine away this years ago.

Tom -  04-17-2021 10:07
     Thank you!

PlaybyPlay225 -  04-17-2021 10:08
     I wonder, for the Peter Sam model, how will the funnel be done? Will it be the cgi funnel, the square model series one, just the regular round one, or will it be interchangeable?

-  04-17-2021 10:08
     **PlaybyPlay225** We have no info on Peter Sam right now. We will announce information and photos as soon as we do.
