As you probably know Bachmann have decided to discontinue their most popular Two-Truck Climax Locomotive
in the excellent Spectrum Series and have already disposed of their remaining stock as seems to be there usual practice.

Al Kramer secured a significant number of both the Standard and DCC Sound On Aboard versions and you may have recently
seen them listed on eBay for a lot less than Trainworld are offering them at. I have just purchased two of the latter sound-equipped
editions as I could not make up my mind which livery would look best on my Colorado layout.

Having finally being released by Customs I have decided on my preference I now have the other for sale but before I list on
eBay I thought I would see if any members would be interested in acquiring it at a very competitive price as I believe this model may have now sold out.




Bachmann 1:20.3 Climax Locomotive with "Soundtraxx" Tsunami Sound "Clear Lake Lumber Co.#7" Cat.No. 86093



The Class "B" two-truck locomotive, introduced by Climax in 1893, featured a horizontal boiler with slanted cylinders. The new design was an instant success and quickly became Climax's most popular model, remaining so throughout the company's history. Bachmann is proud to present this Climax model with Soundtraxx® Tsunami® sound technology that lets you enjoy every authentic whistle, bell, chuff, clang, and more in realistic high-quality 16-bit sound.

  • switch behind the smoke box door with centre "off" position to choose either DCC or DC operation of the smoke unit
  • optical sensors in the locomotive that give you the option of adjusting the timing and count of steam chuffs

  • precision-balanced can motor

Hi John
I am endeavouring to recover my costs as although I was able to source this superb locomotive at less than half price the shipping costs across the Atlantic are substantial and the HMRC were insistent that I paid 20% VAT on the total landed value. I would be prepared to accept an offer of £380 and I will bear the shipping and insurance costs if that would be acceptable to you.
