    I had a pretty good inkling that's what they would say.

    Well, that's not the point, though and isn't really true. Most modelers are glad to have packs able to supply greater amounts of current to avoid loading down an insufficient one and having trains...

    The only time there would be a problem is if you short out the rails because whatever is between them will get hot from the current flowing. If the power pack can supply 2 amperes, for instance, that...

    As I said in my other post, just don't turn it up too high. You only want to run trains at prototypical speeds anyway. The maximum voltage output of a power pack is not its power output. Power is...

    The voltage output at full throttle is not the power output. Amperage is power output. If you are worried about the voltage, don't turn it up all the way.

    It'll be fine. I have one and they work...

    That's neat. It looks like the same building in the background in both photos.

    Also, that steamer looks new (for back then) in that photo.

    I bought one of the first Dash 9 release in 1997 and it still runs perfectly with minimal maintenance.

    If the material is ZAMAC (Zinc Aluminum Metal Alloy Casting), soldering won't work well at all. ACC (CA) would be the preferred adhesive. It works very well for this metal.

    Just clean them with dish soap and a toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly. You don't even have to remove the trucks. I do it all the time. Dry with compressed air if available.

    If any musty smell remains,...

    It's all sold out so those people who bought all the toilet paper can sterilize it.

    You mean there's no command in DCC that will correct that coupler problem?

    I just do what Victor does with locos stored. I take them out of the box and put them on the track and see what happens. Run good? Cool. Add a little lube and you're good. Run poorly? Investigate.

    Either would be fine. Use the RoCo grease for gears if you want grease on those (I do) and the Faller for bushings/shafts.

    I think I would trust those as both companies have been at it for a long...

    I use LaBelle 108 or 107 oil on motor and worm shafts and Labelle 106 grease for gears and the like. I have been using them since about 1974 and haven't had anything wear out.

    I originally tried...

    Many inexpensive N scale cars with Rapido couplers have very poor renditions of them and will uncouple. Many of them are tilted up or down or have rounded edges, for example.

    I missed HOn30guy's post, too.

    I agree with Victor. It's just a poor design, plugging a solid metal axle into a plastic axle pocket and expecting the axle pocket to not crack. I don't know why any...

    Good suggestion though, Andrew. Always a good thing to check for that symptom.
