        My Grandson Loves Trains very much

    • Q:

      "Is this train compatible with Bachmann DCC control systems?"

      • A:

        Hello Jordan Mazzola, it is compatible if you are using the Bachmann E-Z Command controller, (the one with the Dial and the 10 buttons to the right of the Dial), you can plug that into the track and run the locomotive. The Locomotive in the 24009 Set is a an Analog (sometimes called DC) Locomotive. All Analog locomotives only run on address 10 (button 10) on the E-Z Command System. Additionally you can only run one Analog locomotive at a time. You cannot leave the Analog locomotive on the track in the stopped position while you are running your other DCC locomotives on address 1 thru 9 or you will burn out the electronics on the Analog locomotive. I hope that information helps. Thank you for shopping with us.
