East meets West! History was made when the Transcontinental Railroad was completed in
Promontory, Utah on May 10, 1869. Bachmann is marking the 150th anniversary of the
famous Golden Spike ceremony celebrating this feat with the HO Transcontinental with Digital
Sound train set. This Limited Edition set has everything you need to get started in digital model
railroading. It includes Bachmann’s exclusive, easy-to-use E-Z Command® digital system plus two
DCC sound-equipped 4-4-0 commemorative locomotives. Now you can relive all the sights and
sounds of this historic event.
Sound-equipped locomotives continue to ride a wave of popularity with new and improved
technology. Gracing the cover is our first WOWSound®-equipped steam engine, the HO
Streamlined K4 4-6-2 Pacific. It features a WOWSound® steam sound package that includes bell,
whistle, blow down, cylinder cocks, water fill, coupler close/release, brake release and application,
momentum, grade crossing quill, departing and arriving station announcements, and more.
This year even more N scale models are alive with sound. The new 4-8-2 Light Mountain is DCC
Econami™ Sound Value-equipped. There is also a new N scale steam set, Whistle-Stop Special,
and a new diesel set, Roaring Rails, that each includes a DCC sound-equipped engine and E-Z
Thomas & Friends™ fans will be excited by our entirely new line of N scale products including the
most popular locomotives and wagons.
Large Scale modelers can look forward to the return of the 4-6-0 Locomotive with Metal Gears
in a DCC and Sound Ready version that includes a brand-new tender. Equipped with factoryinstalled speakers, it is ready for the addition of plug-and-play prototypical sound. (Plug-and-Play
Sound Module available separately for sound-on-board performance.)
With a large section of sets, including our first battery-operated sets for 3+ engineers, and a
variety of new rolling stock categories, this catalog offers lots of options for beginning and
experienced hobbyists to enjoy in 2019!
