Thanks for the list Bill. Very helpful. Cheesy

Which Bachmann locos have ALL brass gears?  Huh?

I use this system with my locos but with battery power, but it will work with powered track as well. I think it is a bargain and works very well.

Check the wheel gauge on the coaches. If they are too wide they will "sing" on the rails. Look at measurement "B" below.

Bachmann METAL wheels are NOT steel! They are some alloy of zinc and who knows what. They are not ferromagnetic* metal. They do not rust. Mystery metal of some alloy.

*Materials that can be magnetized, which are also the ones that are strongly attracted to a magnet, are called ferromagnetic (or ferrimagnetic). These include iron, nickel, cobalt, some alloys of rare-earth metals, and some naturally occurring minerals such as lodestone.

The resister can be attached to either the anode (+) or the cathode (-) and it limits the current and keeps the LED from blowing out. I myself always attach the resister to the anode (long  lead) but can verify it works on the short lead too.  Wink

The length of the track should not make any real difference. Did you unplug/re-plug the hand control cable? Maybe it was making a poor connection when you experienced your problems.  Huh? Glad it was not your motive power.

I have Bachmann 10 Wheelers and the Rail truck and mine both will run fine with any setting on the USAT power pack. Setting it to a lower scale only seems to lower the max output voltage. My motive power runs well with any waveform setting.  Undecided

BTW, I took my Train Power 10 out of service and replaced it with a Bidgewerks system and then an Aristo TE system because I wanted radio control and the sound system in my Aristo 0-4-0 wouldn't work correctly on linear DC. It needs PWC (Greg clued me into that  Grin).

Sorry to hear the 4-6-0 problem persists.  Embarrassed

Andrew,
I think you linked the wrong video. Those are someone else's HO trains!  Undecided

Is this the power supply that is giving you problems?


If so, I have one too that gave me weird problems. It turned out to be the hand control cable! It is a telephone cable, so I went to my local Radio Shack with it and purchased another cable. Viola! It worked as advertised. This may or may not be YOUR problem, but it's worth a try.  Wink

Are you saying the G gauge rail truck is different?  Huh?

If I were you I would back away from this "genius" as he is wrong. See if you can find the article he got his info from so we can debunk it!  Undecided
