Bachmann USRA 4-6-2
Author: Frisco1522

Looking at MR, I saw an ad for the new Botchmann USRA 4-6-2.  Photo of the left side shows the same thing they have been doing wrong for years.  The eccentric crank is positioned wrong.  What part of the crank should lead on both sides don't they understand?
If its worth doing, then its worth doing correctly.
Wonder if they will do a Penn Central version?

It will have to be Deepwater green to be accurate for PC.  I understand it will be released after the Chinese Red CB&Q engine.

They're also working on an Amtrak version with the big arrow.

The first container of 40' boxcars that K-Line ordered from the PRC was printed only on one side. Why? Because the blueprints only showed one side. True story.

The AT&SF and the Union Pacific had NO(zero) USRA 4-6-2s. wag216
