Bachmann HO-Scale
                                    Trains Resource

Bachmann's first HO-scale passenger car is this 85-foot Full Domed Passenger Car presented in the 1974 catalog. The Santa Fe roadname joins the Auto-Train and Amtrak listings in the 1974 catalog. The Full Dome is priced at $10 in the 1974 Bachmann catalog. The 1978 catalog includes the description "Unlighted" for this car and the retail price is down to $8 for regular examples and $9 for chrome plated versions; however I see no suggestion in prior catalogs that the $10 examples of 1974-77 were lighted.

To aid in navigating tight train set curves, Bachmann's design for the 85-foot Full Dome includes an interesting steering coupler. Illustrated above is an Auto-Train example showing the rod and arm assembly that makes the truck and coupler turn in unison.

Con-Cor announced an HO-scale full dome passenger car for 1975 delivery. The car would have been the same prototype used by Bachmann's example that delivered around this same mid-'70s date. Con-Cor's model never materialized. You may click on the image above to view a larger version of this announcement.
