Here is a teaser picture of my latest purchase... I will get some better ones later... This is a 15 year old virgin so to speak... It is like 45" long!
Tankist is trying to buy a prom dress???:laugh::laugh::laugh:Mighty fancy piece of iron you got there, partner. Looks Great!.
Now, can you zap the guy trying to sell tankist a prom dress! I think he's weakening!
While I usually chirp in on these threads babbleing something about trains, I'm going to digress here for a moment ...:smokin:
It helps to read the instruction manual.I opened the A and B units up today to grease them... In the B unit, the smoke unit is mounted to the shell, so even after taking the shell off of the frame it was still connected via the wires... So, I took off the wire nuts that were on the two wires going to the smoke unit and replaced them with insulated quick disconnects :smokin:
Anyways, this is a PS1 locomotive... This system is so labor intensive compared to PS2... Other members around here in the past have reported problems with trying to get the locomotive to move for the first time... Well, I feel their pain! It took me like 15 minutes of fooling with the controller to finally figure out how to get it to start consistantly... By the way, the instruction booklet was wrong, or at least what they said to do did not work for me
But, overall they run nice... Now I just need to get a set of passenger cars for it - $$$ hwell:
What kind of transformer?No, I am just running off my controller too... The instructions say not to turn the power up past 10 volts before trying to leave the "RESET" phase, but I could not get it to work unless I applied more that 10 volts
