    We just got our new mth railking 2-8-2 Mikado... the dcs isn't here yet. I figured we'd fire it up in conventional mode and play around a little. I'm using a lionel 1033 (oldie but goody). I throw the juice to it and it fires up, smokes and yard sounds start playing but I cant get it to move...
