Well think small, like 2-8-0, 4-6-0, no bigger than 2-8-2, or 4-6-2

Do a google search (WWl trench loco and cars) and you can see them running.

When ever a track is taken out of service, as soon as possible the crossing is removed.  It will be taken out as a unit and mover to the side.  They may have even set the crossing on the out of service track.  If the track is ever put back in service, it is a simple job to put it back.  Crossing are bad news for railroads.  When the Rock Island shut down in eastern Ok. The KCS pulled the crossing.  It turned out that the Rock had some cars they need to pull out.  They raised the track about a foot and put rails over the KCS tracks and pulled the cars, removed the rails and that was it.

Founders & Manufacturers of the original Magne-Matic Knuckle Coupler HOn3 through G ... WORLD'S BEST MAGNETIC COUPLERS FOR OVER 70 YEARS!  That said, It sounds like the problem is with the coupler on the engine.  Try running the train slow up the hill to see if you can see what is happening.  At any rate go to Kadee.com and it will tell you which coupler you need for the engines, and cars.

I am having trouble getting my new engine to go through a switch.  What we need to know is, is it stopping, is sit derailing, what type of locomotive,  what type of track?

The 8 wheels are the same diameter, but everything else is different.

I just guessing, but with the tender marked as #677 Green Valley, I would say some one put there own decals on this locomotive.
If that is the case it would be hard to find the history of this locomotive.

You said the engine has a coil for smoke. If it is HO & Bachmann, I would say it is the Reading 2-8-0, in which case Bachmann smoke fluid would work fine.
The maintenance instructions for the locomotive should tell the make and model.

Well it should last a long time.  you could add a small resistor that would cut the amount of light, but make it last longer.

Yes you can run a wire from each rail to a light. If there power to the rails the light will be on.

You were ok.  You had it in the subject line and I just over looked it.

I am going to make a guess at what you have.  It is a Cary body mounted on either an Athern, or Hobbytown main frame.
15  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: gear sets for old HO Trains. on: August 19, 2017, 02:20:43 PM
Is it cast metal?
