I did the same and it is a perfect runner.
I had three split gears , the small ones.

317  Discussion Boards / On30 / 2-4-4-2 wiring problems on: October 15, 2013, 09:16:01 AM
I have two 2-4-4-2's running on my layout.
First one and now the second one had power pickup problems.
It seemes like the two pickup wires, black and red, on the front bogie are to tight.
They go trough two holes on top of the front gearbox and then go down to the two bronze pickups.
On both two locomotives one of the wires just broke off near the pickups.
That means that i had to disassemble the locomotive and the front bogie to get to the soldering points.
I resoldered the wire and after reassembling the bogie i gave the wires some slack. through the holes.
Let's hope it will solve the problem.

321  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: what was everyones frist train set on: September 21, 2013, 04:25:45 AM
Due to lack of space my father had his layout underneath the parental bed.
The track and locomotives were Fleischmann.
The track was folded steel tracked and had cardboard sleepers.
His first loco was an American diesel switcher and his second a T3.
I still have them running in my collection.
I was born literally with trains under the bed!
I can remember my first train set.
It was a windup from Fleischmann.
Have a look in the 0n30 section/pictures of my website.
The first photo is me in 1958 with the diesel.

I have had a reply from the gears replacement dep.
No thanks to the service dep.
The simple thing is that in English it is O N thirty,  pronouncing the O as the letter O.
Here in the rest of europe we use the 0 as in zero.
So i used a zero in stead of the letter O.......

Now you can see that english is not my native language and that reading is also something you have to do very carefully!
They will forward the message to the appropriate department.
i was focussing on the warenty bla bla........

325  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: REPLACEMENT GEARS on: August 08, 2013, 04:06:36 PM
Yes i got a reply from your service department......
The only problem is that your service department don't seem to communicate with the replacement gears department!
The service departmenr reply was the standard bla bla about rates and warenty.
I don't think that dear Laura had any idea what i was talking about!!
I send here a link to this topic and asked again to forward the previous mail to the replacement gears department.

Will be continued.....

I have tried to send a mail to the special mail adress again, no joy!
It bounced right back with the statement that the adress does not excist.
So now i send a mail to your service department. explaining why and if they could forward my message.....
It didn't come back (yet) , so there is hope.

Has something to do with the back EMF intensity.
I believe CV 212.

Frank, you know one thing for sure was assembled, so it should disassemble to.
I suppose there is an isometric drawing included with the loco!??
