    Mystery noise solved!

    I contacted BLI and, as usual, their customer service was great. I wound up sending them the movie file. Here is their detailed response:

    I decided that the best height was better judged by eye than by trying to follow the prototype. These poles are a little over 30 scale feet in height. I strung the EZ Line using a device I...

    When I’ve installed DCC boards in Kato engines with those little gray clips I’ve either used Kapton tape or a touch of solder to make sure the contacts touch. The gray clips don’t hold tightly enough.
