Hello Everyone!
Its been a while since I have posted - life gets in the way unfortunately . I had a small flood in my basement. Nothing had been damaged (learned that lesson 15 years ago), but I have been moving my stuff to a storage unit to clean up and do repairs to the walls.
So in moving my trains I came across a box that had some items I had not logged into my collection that I had picked up at a train show when I was in Florida before the pandemic (unfortunately I forgot about it when I returned home). I have been trying to keep everything I have in a software program for insurance purposes (and so if I go to a store or show I can see if I have an item - or 10 of an item lol).
I had picked these up in the picture...

Ended up getting them for $5 each. I started to enter them into the database (Item, purchase date, price, photo etc). Upon taking the photo of the BN truck I noticed there were no track wheels? I opened the box and could see there was no motor?

I pulled it out of the blister and nothing - just a truck. It was sealed - I am assuming it came that way from Bachmann. I searched for info on the Tracksters through some old Bachmann catalogs I have and online and I could not find anything on them being offered as only trucks - nor does the packaging show an option as being non-powered. Maybe someone has an idea?

I have one if you need the whole chassis!


bottom should look like this not that!

I'd say someone replaced the wheels & sold it that way

Shoot me a PM
