Clean the track as well

So sorry for your loss. My father gave me the train set he purchased in Germany back in 1958. They had to downsize to move into a retirement community. It was wraped in newspaper from 1980 so I...

Need hands on for proper review.

Send samples to folks on this board and get a real review. :D Seriously they look good but I'm not sure I would pay that much, at least until I tried to make my own.

Success.

The shell was so tight it took a screwdriver to pry it off. Normally I can do it by hand. Your responses gave me confidence that I would not damage the unit, thank you again.

Thank you both for your response. I'm not sure what kind they are because they did not come with a box. They were mounted on wooden stand. It makes sense to me that it should come apart the same...

How to disassemble an Athearn dummy Loco?

I picked up an Athearn SD40-2 dummy off of ebay. It looks real good and I'm thinking about trading shells with a powered Athearn. The shell comes off the powered unit fairly easily but not so on...

I looked on the underside of the board and found a number to Google. It is just an Atlas replacement board that is DCC ready for an 8 pin decoder. There is nothing on the decoder to identify it...

Thank you both, I had no idea that this should run long nose forward. Where do I find out which road names run which direction? It might be good to know prior to installing any additional decoders.

I just picked up this Kato RS-3 (I think). It has DCC and sound. I actually have a half dozen Kato RS locomotives non-DCC and I would like to know what the decoder is because it fits fairly well...

Happy customer

I received an Atlas BN GP 40 from sdlink today. It was well packed and arrived in great condition. It runs smooth just as he said it would. Thank you sdlink.
