Features and Maintenance – Bachmann Locomotives

100_3005My first Large Scale purchase was one of the Sam’s Club sets that came with Bachmann 4-6-0 Anniversary Edition engines. Later I added a Bachmann Shay and another Bachmann Annie. My latest acquisition is a first generation Climax.

 

So at present I am only running Bachmann locomotives. I find that the Bachmann offerings provide the best features/price point for me.

I have all the manuals and videos (VHS and DVD) that came with the aforementioned engines and if pressed I could probably find them (given enough time). But from the questions I’ve seen on MyLargeScale and on the Bachmann web sites a lot of people have purchased Bachmann engines  and do not have the instructional videos that originally came with them.

Not to worry!

Bachmann has made a number of the videos and engine diagrams available online.
