In this video I’ll take you through all the functions except function 11 which is for the sound volume control. In the next video i’ll show it shutting down. The Super detailing pack that comes with the loco has been fitted, I’ve yet to fit the brass etched name plates that also come as standard. The coaches are by Bachmann & were a limited edition for Harburn hobbies & Model Rail (magazine), all now sold out. Video Rating: 4 / 5
Here you see 55 001 ST Paddy on a charter train (Modellers license used here as the real 55 001 was one of the 1st of the class of deltics to get scrapped).This loco is the latest addition to my fleet, & long time waited for too. So here you see it in action on what will be the lower level of this layout when it gets finished. The Deltic loco has had it’s pack of super detailed parts fitted, with the exception of the brass etched name plates that also come supplied in the box. I’ll be uploading another video this week showing you all the different functions this DCC sound on board loco has.

A video of two of my favorite model train and also real train engines running around my layout. Obviously, the layout is still under construction. The Hudson is very old, I think my grandpa said he bought it in the 60’s, so that is why it is a little loud and doesn’t run really smoothly. It has an awesome smoke effect though. 🙂
Question by : How Many Cars will an N Scale Bachmann 2-8-0 Consolidation Pull?
Im building an N scale model railroad and I plan on buying this engine. Im going to use it to pull atlas trainman 70 ton Santa Fe ore cars and I need to know how many I can pull with this engine on an over under figure 8 loop. Im using the Bachmann N Scale Pier set to set the height.
Answer by Wdlane While I can’t answer your question directly, real railroad grades were generally up to 2% (1 foot rise in 100 running feet = 1%) Anything more than that was pretty a steep grade. Model railroad planning is not much different. I am guessing that any pier set as you mentioned would much be a steeper grade that 2%. If you kept your grades realistic the cars you could pull would also be more correct.
I have seen especially N Scale locomotives pull more cars than the prototype locomotive they are representing. I guess it is a physics thing.
Same MRC Sound decoder as before. Demonstrating the motor control. It actually runs better and smoother under straight DC power. I have tweaked the CVs as much as I can and this is the best slow speed performance I can get. It’s not horrible for the price, but other more expensive decoders have better motor control.
