I'm wanting to assemble a plausible rendition of an 1880s Cape Girardeau and Southwestern train. Tonight I added DCC and Athearn/Roundhouse tender trucks with all wheel electrical pick up to my Bachmann Old Timer. It runs like a charm with good slow speed control even through turnouts. I still have glue the domes on and add the wood load. Soon I will attempt to letter it. I just had to have a train that would have riding the rails of the Zalma Branch back when it was built.
