    Greetings, all
    I've been eyeing the Bachmann 2-6-2 Prarie. Like the looks of it, especially for my "museum" pike, which is starting to take shape. Will try to post pics of that as soon as I figure out how. Anyway, what have your experiences been regarding this loco? Good runner? Thanks

    The Bachmann 2-6-2 is the same loco as their 0-6-0 with pilot and trailing trucks and a different tender.
    I have an 0-6-0 that never ran right from the day I bought it until I preformed a MAJOR overhaul on it.
    These locos have a problem with the plastic axle centers cracking causing the drivers to get out of quarter.
    This is how I fixed the problem.
