    Some time back you posted a comment on how to
    remove the shell from the Bachmann Doodlebug.
    I just spent all afternoon doing that to resolder
    a wire to the back truck. As you said, It was
    tedius, and even as much putting it back together.
    But I thank you for the instructions it is otherwise
    not at all intuitive.

    Glad to help. If you use Loc-Tite, use the blue, not the red. A little dab will is a common trick to keep drive rod screws in line as well.

    Mister Bill

    You have been coaching me on a sluggish Y6B Mallet.

    I think I have isolated the problem to a screw on the tender truck that unscrews gradually after running a few minutes to the extent that the connection becomes loose. I tighten the screw just so much but not too much (or it does not have enough play), and then it runs good for a while and then starts to sputter again.

    I was thinking about using something like Loctite and let it sit overnight.

    What are your thoughts about that?

    I also might be able to get a better grip if I could put a few strands of fine steel wool in the threads, an old woodworker’s trick.

    Thanks for your time.

    I certainly understand. It's like pulling teeth to get straight
    answers to simple questions.

    I could probably do it if I could see it. Seems
    straightforward to me. But tell me a couple things
    and I could probably get it going.

    Frame: Metal or Plastic?

    Power pickup...wipers on wheels of one side?
    wheels other side power thru frame?

    Motor: Has 2 tabs? One is grounded to frame?
    Other connected to wire from wipers?

    The drive shaft is a brass tube? Must it be isolated?

    Necessary to isolate motor from frame?
    Electricians tape to do it?

    Headlight is 12 V? Is there a backup headlight?
    One side grounded to frame?
    Or is it 2 wires?

    Think if I knew these things I could guide
    the guy.

    Our Forum friend from Singapore has a problem installing a DCC decoder
    in a Rivarossi GG-1. No one with experience has responded and
    Kiong is very frustrated. I've tried some guessing
    since I know nothing of the loco. It seems right up your alley, so thought I'd
    alert you. His thread is in DCC Forum: How do I Isolate Rivarossi.

    Thanks, I had stumbled upon them in the past and really liked the look of your steam engines. As I am beginning to paint, letter and weather my own stock, I wanted to take a closer look at yours for inspiration. )

    What happened to all of your photos? I can't find them anywhere, wanted to look at some of your engines again.
