Tom - I've done that before too with the extra wires. The good thing in doing it that way is you can use different radius curves instead of having to stay with 18" radius.

Thanks Len. That passenger and combine look like the old paint scheme before they made them with the trim on them.
I have the passenger, combine, and baggage with the old paint scheme but I really like the ones with the trim. There are a few combines out there for sale with the Thomas Kinkade paint and some customized ones.

I just bought a new On30 passenger car unlettered in olive (26202). I really like the looks of these compared to the old single color ones that I have. No one has any combines in that color. Is there any chance Bachmann will produce combines in that color or rerun them if they already have?

Ton - You designed the whole thing and made it? That's great work.

I don't subscribe so that's probably why. I'm guessing it comes automatically with your subscription to MR.

As long as you keep the positive and negative wires so the pos stays with one rail around the whole thing and the neg with the other rail you will be ok using multiple wires. If you have three loops, the inside rail will become the outside rail then the inside rail again and vice versa.
Having said that, I don't know why it wouldn't run now if it was running before you added the extra loop. I wouldn't think that an extra loop would add that much to it.
It sounds like something else is causing your problem.

I hope the new year is good for everyone.

That video doesn't load.  It says Video Plus is a subscription site for $4.95 a month.
Here's a couple more that don't require subscribing -

Wilbart - So now, you're all set for sound with the system to control it. Buying sound equipped locos will be the next step.

I saw those. I was just being silly.

Flare - I guess that makes sense but if they are traveling down the road a long distance, they wouldn't want to use up all their kerosene by keeping the back one lit. They could just relight it when they got somewhere they had to back up.
42  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: Heisler sound on: December 30, 2017, 03:19:41 PM
I don't know why they didn't set the back up light to only come on when backing up. If I solder mine to fix it, then I'll have to mess with changing the code. Sad

Old fart - Picture a noose. That is the "reverse loop" he is talking about where the track comes back together to form one track.

This is from Hobbylinc's site:
"Manufacturer Comments
    Other NMRA-conformant digital control systems will work to operate in digital command mode.
    Locomotives in this set are not sound equipped. (I did the "bold" highlight.)
    Easily expand your layout with more E-Z Track (bac44594)."

HockeyStix - Did you ever figure out your problem?
