1  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: What decoder does the 2-6-6-2 articulated use? on: November 19, 2017, 08:01:43 PM
I have several 2-6-6-2's , no problems at all.
Maybe it needs a bit of lubrication?
Might do the trick.

Or if you want a guaranteed working connection , solder the wires in place.

The capacitor is there to suppress radio frequentie interference from the spark of the motor.
It works like a sort of filter.
It can also suppress the dcc signal to the motor and that is what you don't want.
So always remove the C from the motor.

I get your drift.
I wandered also when the ten wheelers came out.
I had a #12 but because of the lack of cars i swapped it for an unpainted one with a friend of mine.
He is making his own cars using a cutting plotter.

There is a good article about ET&WNC passenger car kits by Dearfield in the 2017 0n30 review .
They have full size cars and conversion kits based on the JS cars from Bachmann.

Have a look at San Juan Decals.
They have screen printed white decals.

They are not a decal but are printed on in the factory.
The text is screen printed on a silicone transfer block and then pressed against the object.

By the looks of the diagram it is already connected.

That sad i can't recollect ever seeing a capacitor when i transplanted the sound decoder to a 2-4-0.
But that is a few years ago.

The pcb's of the 2-4-4-2 and the 2-6-6-2 are the same.
I think the sound pcb's are one and the same for both.

I use brake fluid.
Apply and let it soak for a while then use an old toothbrush to remove the paint layer for layer.

If you have a look at the top diagram on the right it looks like your right.

To add to the comment.
It makes an awful high pitched noise and is detrimental for the motors.

Those sugar cain cars, that's what is still missing in the Bachmann collection.
Maybe a suggestion for the Bachman?
Could be a moneymaker as you would need a lot of them to make a train.
