    Greetings, fellow O-gaugers: A couple of weeks ago I picked up a used MTH 20-2011-1 Conrail C30-7 at a local train show. Upon reading about the potential corruption of the QSI chip with dead batteries, I promptly bought a new 8.4V rechargeable NiMh battery and opened it up. What I found...

    Apologies as I did not find a DCS forum (if there is then, moderator please move thread). Is the DCS hand held the "smarts" and the TIU the "dumb" unit? In other words could I take my handheld and engine to another DCS layout, and assuming all things equal, would my engine run on that layout...

    I have an early MTH RailKing 30-1118-1 Pennsylvania Tornado. The tender has the "Zinc Pest" problem, and has rotted away. I would like to put a new body on the tender, as the loco still runs really well, and I frankly like it. *** It can be a raw "aftermarket kit" as far as I'm concerned - I...

Laid the track, put the engine and tender on, reset the DCS (as per the manual), and it ran beautifully, sounds and all, both directions, then sudddenly stopped working.

    Anyone out there have an HO MTH GP38-2 with proto 3 sound? I'm having a problem turning off some sounds I don't want - in particular cab chatter and brake squeal. I have an NCE Power cab. The documentation states F26 is brake sounds on/off and F27 is cab chatter on/off. I have toggled F26 and...

    MTH Steam engine, smoke heater comes on, analog or DCS, fan does not. Disassembled engine, power applied to fan connector pigtail and fan works fine. Traced fan wires individually from fan all the way to connector that plugs into cable which then plugs into the tender. I then, while still all...

I would really...
