      ISO Wanted Bachmann freight trucks

      We have a bunch of homemade flatcars with Bachmann trucks - taken off some regular Bachmann flatcars.  A few more pairs of trucks would help.  Any condition as long as they aren't broken; wheels and couplers n ot important.  Message me if you have any you don't need.

      The wheel pages have no products, but the home page says "TO PLACE AN ORDER please email AL . .". I suspect all his business is on eBay, where he lists the various wheels.

      Pete, when someone sends me to a web site to look at product, I expect to see page(s) of product offerings, not a note to send an email to order product I don't see. As for eBay, I stopped gong there years ago when eBay stopped being for the individual and became a business web site. When eBay began punishing buyers for giving negative feedback on bad sellers. EBay's rating system is, in my opinion, fraudlent and misleading. I have no intent of paying 10% plus to purchase items through eBay and be forced to use PayPal and add their ridiculous additional charges. If I can't deal with the seller without going through eBay and PayPal, I don't need their product.

       

      FWIW, my opinion, yours may differ.

      Come one Bob, tell us how you really feel!

       

      Too bad, you indeed have to be careful with ebay, but there are deals to be had, and many times the only place to find something hard to get. (I do agree about the costs and rating system, but I disagree about stopping being for the individual, it was always about the money as a business site, as Joe Peshi said in Casino "it's always about the dollars).

      I rest my case. (And I agree with Greg. eBay is occasionally the place to find something unusual. Like an AML K4 Pacific in live steam.)

      This seller offers a 10% discount from his eBay prices if you send an email (not through eBay) to him with what you want.

      I use a lot of USAT arch bar truck frames https://www.rldhobbies.com/usa-r2031.aspx with Bachmann 31mm wheel sets. Easier to come by, and buying the wheelsets by the case, cheaper.

       

      I spent a bunch of hours measuring the Bachmann, USAT, Hartford Products, and a couple I don't even know who made them, and found there is less than .030 bolster height difference among them. Appearance, obviously the Hartford trucks being sprung and articulated are far superior. Appearance between the USAT and Bachmann trucks is negligible. Especially if you are not using the coupler tongue, there is no functional difference, IMHO.

       

      FWIW

      Pete,

       

      Did you get the trucks you need? I most likely have some in my junk pile. Send me a PM

      I'll check how he's doing. I think he still needs some more.

      I assume you are talking the traditional bachmann archbar right. I have an entire draw jammed with trucks I am sure I have some and can spare them
