    Three or four years ago, Bachmann realeased a 2-4-2 tank logging steam engine. This was a Spectrum release. Can anyone tell me whether it was 1:22.5 or 1:20.3. If 1:20.3, I would like to find one somewhere. Not sure whether these are still available from Bachmann.

    The 2-4-2T isn't being made anymore, but you might be able to find one on E-bay.

    Checking throught the Bachmann archives, it says "Bachmann calls it 1:20.3 "

    Thanks for the update. We'll see what response I get from Bachmann.

    I recall when it was released, it apparently was Bachmann's next 1:20.3 release after the disaster shay release. I was wondering as the picture I had seen appeared to depict the door to the cab at about a height of 5 foot 6 inches in 1:20.3.
    That was the reason for my inquiry.

    By the way, I will be vacationing in Toronto the week of September 20th. Been there seveal times on business and dared the 401 at rush hour!!! Man, what a freeway. Maybe we can hook up then.

    Thank again,

    Hi Marc,

    Glad to be of help.
