Bachmann Releases Replacement Motor Blocks for Aristo 2-Axle Engines
Bachmann's Aristo-based Eggliners are starting to arrive at dealers and with them are the spare parts. The Bachmann Eggliner uses the same 2-axle motor block found on the original Aristo Eggliner, so spare motor blocks can now be found for your U25B/FA1/FB1/RS3 locomotives in need of a little love since the motor blocks from these 2-axle products were all interchangeable. The Bachmann part number is BAC 96275SP. The design appears to be the last one Aristo released without the axle spokes going through the sideframe and the machined wheels have the lovely metallic finish that everyone has known to identify as "good" Aristocraft.
