Semi-Retired; more time for trains.
Hi, I am after a complete, working, 4-6-0 chassis (with metal wheels & side rods), just checked the Bachmann site, they have these in stock, but want almost the same again in shipping, and then there will be import duty, and the price become unrealistic.
The chassis does not need to 100%, but it does need to function, willing to pay an appropriate price (including p&p) for an appropriate condition chassis.
Please PM or email me, many thanks.

You might also want to specify what generation of drive train too... also metal side rods although all anniversary units did have metal side rods, there are many people who do not know this and will proffer something else as an "Annie"

JimmyB. There are Walschaert and stephenson valve Anniversary chassis, both with metal rods. The Stephenson version is actually missing it's valve gear having no rod going into the steam chest but such detail can be added.
Bachmann shipping is usually not too expensive when buying several items together in one order. Shipping always costs a premium on a single item.

Paradise, many thanks for the info, though I am not overly bothered about detail. The one thing that i don't understand on the Bachmann website is the term "old pilot" against a couple of the chassis!
Perhaps that refers to the older more fragile pilot compared to the new improved one.
