Bachmann inc.

History:

After World War II in the 1940’s there was a big push to produce a series of standard locomotives that would have the best of all the Big Four designs and that would work effectively in all the different regions as well. One of the most common standard tanks was the 3mt tank 2-6-2 which was seen just about every where in the British Isles from the 1940’s till the end of steam in the 1960’s. There is, as most models now produced, a weathered version which depicts the general upkeep of the loco well when the locos were in heavy usage.

Internally:

The model runs very smoothly at all speeds in both DC and DCC with a standard Bachmann motor in it. The loco is DCC ready with a 8-pin input placed in front of the motor with space enough to fit most decoder types. Although space inside is tight installing sound is possible but may require some internal surgery depending on what you choose to use for the decoder and speaker. Preferably a small decoder and oblong speaker.

Performance:

In real life these locos spent most of their lives on the branch lines hauling short trains and the model handles this task easily with the ability to pull much more still running smooth at slow speeds.

Externally:

The detailing of this model is exquisite and very finely tooled. The model comes with a detailing pack that has all the buffer beam detail and the white train identification disc for all that extra realism.

Downs:

Tight interior for any sound. Having all the buffer beam detail on means that you can’t use the bachmann Loop and hook coupling as it gets in the way of the detail. Other than that this a great model that comes in several liveries and weathered.
