I just purchased two Bachmann boxcars. There are some interesting things involved with the cars I received. One is a Great Northern boxcar. It has the normal metal wheels, but very little graphics on the body. Has the railroad name and number, but no gross weights, etc. The second boxcar is a Durango & Silverton. It has all of the graphics on it, but it came with plastic wheels!!!! I never had a Bachmann car come with plastic wheels before. I am happy with the cars, and I'm not complaining, but I was just surprised to discover new Bachmann cars like this.

First of all, Cale & Pete, you are right they are Big Hauler, definitely not spectrum cars. That is interesting, Pete, that Bachmann did at one time make their rolling stock with plastic wheels. I am positive this was manufactured some time ago as it was a Durango and Silverton. I haven't seen that in the past five years at least. I just didn't realize that Bachmann ever had made cars with plastic wheels. I was just happy to get it since I hadn't seen it anywhere else. This supplier has a lot of "outdated" products, which I love to purchase.

Anyway, thanks for the heads up that Bachmann did in fact make cars with plastic wheels in the past.
