    Co. Donegal is from where I obtained a very rare (Motorola MC1305) FM multiplex demodulator integrated circuit for my old Heathkit AJ-29 tuner. I got it, installed it, and it works perfectly. It's...

    Something I thought I would never see - a sheet of genuine Lone Star British crest (lion in a circle) decals for British Treble-O-Lectric locomotives. Some of mine are missing. Waiting a while as...

    I don't think Micro-Trains can foresee all variables out in the field to be individually adjusting the trip pin height. Have we become THAT lazy as model railroaders?

    As I demonstrated above, "Viaduct" also became a comedic tool for the Marx Brothers.

    Micro-Trains specifically instructs you to make sure the trip pin is adjusted ten thousandths above the railhead. That's what the gauge is for.

    I always have them a bit higher than that to account...

    Sure, they're still around, the Starrucca viaduct probably the most famous rail-related one in the US.

    Viaduct? Vi not a chicken?

    Mine was a gift so it was pretty cheap. :D

    It's nice though. I can move it around easily and it's lit and has an extra little area on the lens which is super duper magnification. I can even see...

    Well, he said the shell doesn't fit right. My Con-Cor PAs are all first or second generation so I can't help with that.

    What do you mean by the pilots are completely different? The pilots are attached to the front truck and, of course, a dummy unit is going to be different from a powered one.

    What iteration is your...

    As kingmeow indicated, you need to clean out the slots between the commutator segments. What you are seeing are called fire rings caused by brush debris getting onto the commutator segment surfaces...

    Did you measure the voltage from the pack with it disconnected from everything?

    The reaction has become silly. I'm surprised there aren't events a year out, cancelled.

    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.

    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.
