Title: 0-4-0 Porter
Post by: smokinporter on June 01, 2007, 11:09:16 AM
Good Day
Hi  everyone on the On30 board, I am a newby and this question perhaps has been asked. But here goes, has the power pickup on the 0-4-0 been improved ? I have installed DCC in a number of 0-4-0s and they all worked till they jumped a switch and the little plunger springs folded like a cheep card table and the little engines were toast. (Have About 6 in a box)
  I have a 0-4-2 with DCC and sound and there pickups appear to be holding up great. If the new 0-4-0 has the same pickups I will try them again as I think they are great little engines.
Thanks for reading,
  Wes AKA smokinporter

Dear Porter,
I believe all current production has the improved pickups.
Have fun!

Wes,

they all have improved Power Pickups now - running great now.
They´re great looking little critters, but I´m sure you already have a closer look.

Have fun.
Kind regards from Germany,

Tom

Change those 0-4-0 springs for Kadee freight truck springs - I did mine when the 0-4-0s first came out and haven't looked back since.
