2-4-2T Bachmann

 

The first versions were green and said "Lyn". These were requested by Bachmann UK, but did not sell many.

They then repainted it and added a few details for sale in the US, but both version had the clamshell gearbox, with the motor almost horizontal.

Interesting story, one half of the motor block was significantly lower in quality, would crack and fall apart. Later research found that this "bad half" was made from regrind plastic.

 

 

91197 part number is the newer "DCC ready" version, drive different, wheels different, a reasonable running loco.
