I picked up my new Bachmann Spectrum 4-8-2 "Mountain" this past Saturday:thumb: and gave it a trial run on the Club layout this evening. It did fine initially untill I opened it up to about 3/4 throttle (perhaps about 45-50 scale mph) and a rivet popped in a part of its drive linkage.wall1 Two arms were bent as a result. :cry: I took several close up photos to e-mail to Bachmann as well as my LHS 50 miles away to illustrate the failure and damage. I'm awaiting a reply from each to get an e-mail address that accepts photos. How often does this sort of thing happen with HO steam engines? Both the long arm and the shorter arm it attaches two were bent by whatever malfunction caused the separation.
