Hi all, I'm new here.
Not new to model railroading though.
I got these Bachmann cars on the bay.
I can't stand that plastic fantastic toy look though.
So, I started with removing the heralds from the caboose with paint stripper.
Then I repainted both cars with Scalecoat mineral red paint...
Many years ago, I picked up a Milwaukee Road Bachmann Big Hauler set to run around the Christmas tree once a year. Unfortunately, in just 2 Christmas seasons of just a few hours run time, it failed with a broken gear in the drive. I sent it back to Bachmann and they repaired it...
