IN THE ABOVE VIEW, WE SEE THE BASIC
CANNONBALL CAR SHOPS' GE STEEPLECAB
KIT, ASSEMBLED AND SITTING ON
A PAIR OF POWER TRUCKS FROM A
BACHMANN 44 TON DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE.

THE CANNONBALL KIT IS VERY WELL DONE AND A WONDERFUL STARTING POINT FOR A FUN,
HO SCALE TRACTION DETAILING PROJECT.

AT LEFT IS A MODEL OF THE FT. DODGE, DES MOINES & SOUTHERN PROTOTYPE AS MODELED BY JOHN HITZEMAN USING THE LASER DIRECT DETAILING PARTS.
OUR GE-ALCO TRUCKS ARE SHOWN AT RIGHT.
INCLUDED ARE FOUR CAST WHITE METAL SIDEFRAMES AND FOUR LASER CUT ACRYLIC MOUNTING BLOCKS


ONCE THE MOUNTING BLOCKS ARE GLUED IN PLACE,
THE SIDEFRAME JUST PRESSES ONTO THE EXISTING MOUNTING PINS ON THE BACHMANN TRUCK.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS LOWERING KIT WAS DESIGNED TO BE USED
WITH THE "OLD" BACHMANN 44 TON DIESEL THAT HAD TWO MOTORS,
ONE EACH, MOUNTED ON THE TRUCKS. BACHMANN HAS CHANGED
THEIR DESIGN, AND THE "NEW" 44 TONNER HAS A SINGLE MOTOR
THAT DRIVES THE WHEELS BY USE OF A "STANDARD" POWER
TRAIN -- UNIVERSALS TO A GEAR TOWER, ETC.

THERE ARE USUALLY SEVERAL OF THE "OLD" MODELS LISTED
ON
eBay.   ONE WAY TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU ARE LOOKING
AT THE "OLD" VERSION, IS THAT THEY CAME IN THE BLACK
BOX WITH "SPECTRUM" PRINTED IN GOLD.
