    Thank you for the reply Jim. I found good information about Aristocraft and LGB on their company websites but nothing useful at the official Bachmann site. Unless I went to the wrong one.

    Try www.ovgrs.org. That's my local garden railway group, and I seem to recall they had info about it. If not, thery're a friendly bunch, so try contacting them...

    Thanks Andrew. Looked at the site and found info that allows me to get into the tender . Have considered battery operation as well but will try to keep the battery up by charging from the track. Some very interesting projects on that web site.

    Gene: I went to www.bachmanntrains.com and they have a service/parts tab at the top of their web page that may get you some info on a exploded view.

    Jim, unfortunately I have tried that a number of times and no info. Tried their European and Chinese site too. Tried calling the service dept. too but busy signal only.
