Bachmann China CS00106 QJ Zhu De Steam Locomotive 2470 HO Scale. The QJ’s were the largest type of standard steam locomotive in the People’s Republic of China. The first prototypes were built in the 1950’s, and at the end of the production in 1988, nearly 5,000 had been built. In the early 1980s, many of the original 8 wheel tenders were replaced with larger 12 wheel versions which gave the locomotives a much larger range. Details The forth and most recent addition to the QJ series was a single version and very famous Harbin based locomotive, named after Chinese general Zhu De. This was Bachmann’s first (and hopefully not last) 8 wheel tender version. A ladder was also included to be attached to one side of the tender. Performance The engine ran every bit as good as the previous series, but this time they’ve finally got the center driving wheel figured out with the correct size and flangeless. The tender has been designed to house a sound decoder with speaker holes cast into the bottom. It happily accepts the DXDC 5302 (QJ) sound decoder and should be able to fit many others.
