  3. HO Scale
    I’ll try to ask this question hopefully without revealing too much electrical ignorance. I have a DC Mantua (“Classics” red box period) 0-8-0 that suffers from poor electrical pick-up on the tender, which I think describes just about every Mantua steam locomotive I have owned. After cleaning...
