This is a really good looking and very nice G scale steam engine ready for duty. This one was produced in Bachmann's higher end line, Spectrum. This is the Bachmann Spectrum 82396 Rail Truck, unlettered with SOUND and DCC/DC. It is the version that is painted black and unlettered. It is a really nice unit--die cast parts, opening front hood on each side with detail inside, specialized sound decoder, and more.
These kids of units are lots of fun to see running down the line.
This one came DCC ready from the factory, and the previous owner added a decoder, sound, and a speaker. It looks to have a ZIMO MX645 decoder installed, according to the little case that housed a specialized Goose sound decoder from Streamlined Backshop Services. The previous owner clearly went the extra mile for realism here. Since the decoder appears to only be partially installed, I was unable to test. When we had it on the test track, the lights came on, but that was all. There is also paperwork here for a Tsunami, but I cannot verify installation. You will have to be the expert. It is up to you to finish the job. OR YOU CAN PUT THE JUMPER BOARD BACK IN and just enjoy it in DC mode.

CONDITION: Cosmetically C-8+. A decoder has been partially installed by the previous owner, so I was NOT ABLE TO TEST it in DC mode as it appears some of the wires from the motor are not hooked up to the decoder. YOU will have to finish. Appears to be outfitted with a ZIMO MX645 decoder programmed with GOOSE sounds (as in Gallopping) and a speaker, all pictured. Has nice box and much of the original paperwork. No instruction manual. With individual parts/diagram sheets.
