Bachmann are, it seems, about to release this model again. Can anyone
tell me if these have been improved over the years, or is the new one
essentially the same as all the previous ones?
I believe that some of the split chassis locos, e.g. the J72, have been
improved over the years with better/stronger axles. I'm not sure if this
is the case with the Ivatt 2-6-2 tank.
Some of the newer Ivatt 2-6-2's seem to have smaller couplings. I prefer
the older Mainline style ones: can the new ones be unscrewed and replaced
with the Mainline couplings?
