Did you instal the decoder correctly? The orange wire is pij 1. There should be a mark or 1 on the PCB to show where pin 1 goes.  Joe

Do you have aloop of track available? If so, run the loco in forward at 1/3 speed for 15 or so minutes, then 2/3 speed then full speeed. Do the same in reverse. This may help.   Joe

Sound value F7A from Model Trainstuff or The Favorite Spot. I dealt with both companies with no problems.  Joe

 The tank lifts  straight up. If it's a sound unit, be carefull as the wire to the speaker is short. The tank fits over the weight on the bottom of the frame, so lift up to clear it.  Joe

Remove the fuel tank. There should be 2 screws there that need to be removed. The truck is held on by a screw through the top of the weight. Look at the diagram, screw number 10115.   Joe

Look on the bottom of the fuel tank to see if there is 2 sets of holes side by side. If not, remove the fuel tank. There should be room for speakers. A fuel tank with the holes in it as well as one with 2 speakers is available from the Bachmann parts store.  Joe

So you don't get confused: DC will power the switch motors not the track!    Joe

I would go with Digitrax. If your club uses it, you have some help with problems. The UR91 has been discontinued. If you want one, EBAY may be the only place to find one.    Joe

Are the strands LED's? If so 4V is too high. LED's don't over heat, the burn out in a bright flash!.   Joe

Is this the old split frame or teh newer one? Running DCC sound on DC is limited. A sound decoder takes 6-7 Volts for the sound to come on and teh loco to move. You can't play the bvell or blow the horn. If it's a newer one click on link. Even though this is for teh old Tsunami, the newer board style Eco nami or Tsunami 2 will work .  Joe

Be aware that DCC sound decoders on DC won't start to work until around 7V. If you plan on getting several DCC sound locos, look into the MRC 1200 Tech 6 Sound Controller 2.0

27  Discussion Boards / HO / $25.00 locomotive on: January 13, 2017, 11:34:08 PM
I was at one of the LHS a couple of weeks ago. They had a 25% off sale going on. I looked around a saw a Bachmann HO FTA DC on board for $25.00 plus 25% off. I bought thinking that if it didn't run I had the makings of a dummy unit. I got it home and took out the decoder and replaced it with a spare Sountraxx decoder I had. It runs great! I bought an F7B body for it and will letter it for my RR.    Joe

Are you running DCC? The reverser is for DCC only. If DCC did you gap both rails coming off both sides of the turnout?    Joe
29  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Nickel Plate Road 765 on: January 03, 2017, 10:39:09 PM
What DCC system? Do you have more than 1 throttle? If so make sure the loco is not on both.     Joe
