 Bill the Rock may not have wanted the the ten light usra mikes.  All railroads were under the control of the USRA and many railroads got USRA locomotives that they did not want.

Well unless you are running at night, just turn the headlight off.  Most U.S. railroad did not start running with headlights on until the mid 50s.

Where you can't reach them.  Since we do not know what your layout looks like it is hard to answer your question.

I think he is missing the screw and not the drawbar.  Bachmann does not show a parts number for the screw.

Bring lots of money, because you will find all kinds of things to buy.

 well the question is, Did the wheels have traction tires?  Was the model a Tyco if it is, then that was bad news to start with.

You say that you are new, and I think that is the problem, not the imperfection in the flex track layout.  May I ask what you are trying to do.  If we know that we will be able to help you solve your problem.

The 0-6-0 does come with DDC.  Now then i would think that the DC model should be DDC ready.

To me, this sounds like an AC unit.  Do you have any other train set like O gauge?

What is your locomotive roster? When I saw this, my mind went back to the 50s.  Articles in MR about peoples layouts, always had their locomotive rosters.  Not so any more.  Back in the old days if you had 10 locomotives you had a large fleet.  back then it was 90% steam. Now with 4 or 5 units per train it soon adds up.

It should not be much of a problem.  all you need to do is shim up the tracks so the top of the rail are the same.

So come to Iron Mountain there is lots to see and do, but how can we come when we don't know where it is?  You need to post some pictures.

You unplug the decoder and place it with the dummy plug and you have a DC locomotive. 
14  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: DCC Locomotive on Dc Track on: January 05, 2018, 10:54:31 PM
Does this locomotive have a dummy plug?

Trainman203, I don't think anyone knows how to drive in the snow any more.  They have a big snow up north, and what do you see on tv?  Cars and truck all over place.  Jonathan, It is easy to make an oil tender out of a cold tend.  Len, I see that little ash car is automatic.  That third rail keep the door shut, and as soon as the third rail ends the door opens and dumps the ash.
