[Re: Bachmann mountain]

Brad Bourbina <bbbourbina@...>

I had the good fortune of seeing the Bachmann Mountain live and in color at my
model RR club's recent show this past weekend. The specific model I drooled
over was the one decorated for the Mopac, and while not exactly accurate, it
still made my eyes bug out. As to the running qualities, 2 club members each
bought one, one Mop and one undec. Both ran with the same smooth quiet
qualities as the Consolidation, with no problems whatsoever. Suffice it to
say I do think there are some "lemons" of this model out there, enough people
have described the problem, but overall I think Bachmann is getting themselves
out of that "toy crap" reputation rather nicely. Now, how about a 2-10-4 to
ice that cake! :)

It would not be past Bachman to put out something when the
expectation was so high, that it just fizzled. After all,
it takes more than just one engine to break a reputation,
especially Bachman's.

I seem to be a bit harsh on them, but considering the
quality a lot of other companies are achieving, there could
have been a lot more done, and I think again they are missing
the boat. O
