This is an opportunity to acquire a superb Bachmann Limited Edition ”Spectrum” Range G Scale Narrow Gauge General Electric 45-TonCentre Cab Side-Rod Diesel Locomotive (Catalogue No. 81898) long discontinued by Bachmann and increasingly difficult to find.

This super-detailed 1:20.3 diesel engine comes in red and yellow Unlettered livery and is vastly superior to Bachmann’s standard production run of similar locomotives (see accompanying photographs).

These limited issue Spectrum Diesels were discontinued in 2006 so this may be your last chance to obtain one. This super-smooth-running diesel is "previously owned" but only used for display purposes. Comes in the original red factory shipping carton and has full warranty.

This model incorporates many of the enhanced features to be found in the manufacturer’s high quality ‘Spectrum’ range including all metal drive-wheel side rods & railings, 2 smoke units, 2 powerful motors, all-wheel-drive, working knuckle couplers, bright LED directional headlights, fully detailed cab interior with sliding windows, opening doors with working door handles, the cab interior is lighted, and the fuel tank has a speaker grill if you want to install sound.

Your collection is incomplete without this unique locomotive which would grace any 45mm layout but especially if you are an enthusiast for the North American Railroad scene.

This item has been "previously owned" so must be described as Used but is in superb ' as new' condition having been used for display purposes.

Mechanical Features include:

DCC Ready

Metal Die Cast Side-rods and Counterweights

Two (2) heavy Duty Can Motors

Power Trucks with Metal Gearboxes that feature one-piece Axles and Idler Gears

Gear-driven Wheels

All-wheel Electrical Pickup

Two Fully Operational Smoke Units

Exterior Details include:

Die-cast Handrails & Smoke Stacks

Body-mounted coupler that can be adjusted to either Scale or High Rail height

Flush-mounted Cabinet Door Latches
