Dear On15/On18 Crew,

News out of Bachmann US is that the 44tonner is coming in N scale!!! :D

While this is a leg up for the N scalers, I can see some uses for it in the NG world, in various scales!!!! :D :D :D :evil:

What say ye?

Oops, wrong scale, but still valid...

Dear G9 crew,

Sorry, runaway On15/18 post, but still a valid question.

What say Ye about a N scale 44 tonner sized mech for use in G9?
(Anyone for a G9 titch or Gnat on "chain drive bogies"? :evil: )

Already thinking about uses for it :lol:
Hopefully, this will be more like the selling price

G9 team,

I just saw one of these in person at a NG "show and tell" this weekend,
it's tiny-er than I expected,
(been playing with On30 and larger for too long, obviously :lol: )

but ran sweetly, and really did look promising... :twisted:

Dear Adrian,

You would be correct,
if you want a small 4 wheel mech, look at the Bachmann PDT/MDT Plymouths... :lol:

That said, when you see them in person, and realise that they are powered <and> have a fully fledged decoder onboard, it's scary :shock:

Wonder how long it will take for someone to shoehorn sound onboard? :evil:
Happy Modelling,

I saw one at a train show a few months ago. It's included in this video. Excellent pulling power and slow speed.
