Wondered if anyone knows if the chasises and the shells of the Aristo and the Bachmann versions interchange? Does look to me that the new Bachmann shell is one piece, never seen one in person.
I have never compared the 2, but we did comment on the one-piece shell, which seemed a bit odd as Aristo made them from the ends of the observation coaches.
I did notice that the Bachmann Parts Dept says the Eggliner motor block is compatible with the Aristo (in other words, you can use it in your Aristo FA, I guess?) Tends to suggest they are interchangeable.
