The PCSRR machine shop has upgraded the "Holiday Train" from the old (large single drive
gear) Bachmann drive to the new 5th generation lower unit. It is now is much easier on batteries
and will run on 9.6v NiMH packs at prototypical speeds for about 3 hours..
A trip to the 99 cent store produced
the snowman and "Musical Bears"
(99 cents each for a package of 2).
They were placed on the flat car and
have become part of the consist
The lead Trolley has been converted to battery power. The
12V 3AH battery sits on the seats just above the motor
which adds needed weight for added traction. These 2 run
on the second mine loop each day.
In November 2001, two Bachmann
Christmas Trolleys became part of our
Holiday display. The drive on the lead
trolley has been converted a Barry's Big
Train original. The motor and gears in the
Bachmann drive on the "trailer" have
been removed so the wheels roll freely.
