Just a very short video of my Spectrum 2-6-0 running on battery power at Jerry's SC&M RR. And if anyone has some 4-4-0 bits, like the top of the steam dome with the whistles, or the cylinder covers, I'd like to hear from you!

Sadly, I've just rescued a 4-4-0 from the scrap heap - fortunately it had all the important bits >:) >:)

Sadly, can’t help, but is the tender from an EBT Annie?

No. It's the tank from an Aristo classic 2-8-0 on the trucks from the original tender. I don't like the look of those mini tenders. I put the letters on from a sheet of dry transfers from the FEBT store. The 4-6-0 tenders have huge out of scale rivets.
EBT never had a 2-6-0 like this one, but someone remraked it had the flavor of their early engines.

Just a note that there's a bunch of useful info posted on the Bachmann forums about the new axle gear they are providing from the Parts dept, and also the worm gear issue.
