  2. O Scale
    I want to find out why my Lionel 736 engine wheels weren't turning. I have dismantled the 736 engine and the wheels turn by hand easily now. The electric motor worm gear also turns when I grab it with a pair of pliers. I want to bench-test the electric motor but I am not sure how to do it. I...

    I made a painting that looks very different depending on the way it is oriented. My goal is to mount it on a motor that will be connected to a small control panel consisting of two buttons — one to rotate clockwise and one for counter-clockwise — so the viewer can control the orientation they...
