I can't remember seeing a brake hose on the Connie.
I haven't had any problems and i have several 2-8-0's
The only problem i had a while ago was the wiring between the tender and the locomotive dragging over the switches.

measure the current , amperage, your system is drawing when running.
Then check how much the transformer can deliver.
If the current measured is about equal to the specs of the transformer thermal overload protection can occur.
If it's a mechanical protection you should hear a click

That is one possibility, the other could be a loose soldering or connection.
Whet it gets warm contact is intermittently lost.
Good luck then, finding the offending part.

feels like thermal overload safety from your power supply.

Yes I'm also considering sending the Porter back. Unfortunately it's connected whith high shipping costs and a lot of paperwork.

I live in die Niederlande, so for for me it is also no option.

I can't help you with the DVD but turning the wheels probably is not possible because the motor has a worm gear.

I have the same problem and ruined one set of diff gears.

I can come up with two reasons.
It is pure speculation.
1; the motor is damaged and can't deliver power.
2; the gear, wheel assembly is sticking somewhere.
The only way to check this is to remove the motor and move the chassis by hand and feel if there is something sticking and not running free.

325  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: On30 2-6-6-2 boiler removal on: November 25, 2016, 06:16:00 AM
Yes i did several times only it's been a while.
I had to replace the motor and make a T version.
I can remember that is wasn't difficult.
Just removing a bunch of screws.
I beefed up the boiler by adding in on case a split saddle tank and in the other two side tanks.

SPLIT-SADDLETANK CONVERSION KIT for the Bachmann On30 2-6-6-2

this is the exploded drawing from Mr.B


btw , if you are not sure which screws to remove just loosen them and feel what part comes free.

Keep in mind that the Durango & Silverton RR is 3 feet narrow gauge.
The set is standard gauge pretending to be D&S.

I started with PECO and are still using it.
The tye spacing and length are English standard and not US.
The most problems i have are with the selfswitching switches.
The contacts will foul up and stop functioning.
In a module i am making i use handtrows with a frog polarisation switch and the problem is gone.
Have to tell you that i live in the Netherlands and PECO is more readily availlable then ME.
If your are not a rivet counter it is excellent stuf to use.

The ones i use i bought in Hong Kong.
pre painted , cheap and cheerful .
Not that i use them outside the cars but inside you don't see that the paint is rubbish.
But the initial question was how to disassemble the passenger cars.


329  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: adding passengers in On30 passenger cars on: November 14, 2016, 05:21:49 PM
Ik know you have to disassemble from the bottom up.
It's been a while since i did this but that is what i remember.
What i also remember is that i had to amputate the feet of the people otherwise they couldn't fit between the benches.
