A few examples of my attempts at weathering Bachmann 16t mineral wagons

1 Comment

That's lovely rust/weathering. A great example to me, as I've just acquired several old Hornby Dublo 16 ton mineral wagons, so could do with following your lead.  Hope to see your wagons in use this year...

    • Hi Mate, Many thanks for the advise. I'll do some investigating when I have some time. Cheers,  Marcus
       
    • Athearn are a reliable brand. It sounds like your points may be too small a radius.
      I would try to open it up and see if you can re-gauge the wheels you speak of.
      Ideally an NMRA gauge is your best friend, but I've found turning the loco upside down and sliding a piece of set track, or identical kind of point over the wheels will show you what is going on.
      No fun having a new loco fail on the layout. 
    • Hi Mate, thanks for the feedback. This is an SD751. I'll take a good look at the bogies/wheel axles when I have some time. It seems like one of the middle wheel axles doesn't have any lateral movement. It could be a lemon loco, or just a design fault. Having been used to European locos (Trix, Brawa, Roco etc.) and Bachmann Branchline UK stock which are mostly great runners,  I was expecting something better out of the box. Maybe 3 axle bogies aren't really suited to tighter radius curves.
