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 86098 Two-truck Clixax Loco Ggauge 1:20.3 scale with SOUND and DCC/DC. It is the version that is unlettered with red windows, white pinstriping, and white running boards. You can run this one in DC, DCC, or even BATTERY mode if that is what you like to do. This is a very versatile engine. BE SURE TO READ THE MANUAL TO GET THE MOST OUT OF IT. There are lots of settings to operate it just the way you want.
This is one of the more unique steam engines produced in G scale. This two truck Climax steam engine with the awesome diagonal rod.
This one came with DCC Sound from the factory. It looks to have a Soundtraxx decoder installed, and it has the extra boards, too, still sealed. The sound works great even in DC mode. Boards are probably from around 2010, the rough date that this was new.
