hey guys its been a while since i've been on the forum......I was running my Spectrum 2-8-0 Consolidated yesterday for the first time in a while and stripped the drive gear. I was only pulling an 8 car train using plastic rolling stock wheels too. This happened a few years back and I chickened out doing the repair myself and sent the whole thing back to Bachmann for the repair. Is this something I can do myself and are there better stronger longer lasting gears available now. Thanks, Rob   Crete, Il.

I have installed a phoenix sound system PB11 in my Spectrum Connie and cant turn down the volume. I know its with the toggle switch but flipping it back and forth doesn't change anything. Any suggestions?  feeling stupid in Chicago. Thanks Rob

Hello, I purchased an old 1992 PH HOBBIES sound system and was wondering if anyone had any info as to how to hook it up. It appears to be a lot different from the newer systems. Thanks Rob

I also have a davenport and am curious as to what year the actual locos were in service, as my garden Rail Road is modeled after a RR in the 30's. Rob

 Undecided Hi Guys..... Picked up an ITT products sound board for my Bmann railtruck. Its the model T w/ oogua horn. I was wondering if there's an easy way to find the trackpower wires on the trucks circuit board? I took a look at the board and really could not figure out which were the track power wires. As always , any info would be greatly appreciated !! Thanks, Rob

 Undecided  Hi, Bought an old Bmann 4-6-0 big haulerw/tender......it came with an older Sierra sound board installed. The owner said he wasn't how well the sound worked. I decided to remove the sound from the tender an maybe use it in a different loco. My question is .........Does anyone know anything about this particular sound board? What I found printed on the board was........SIERRA STEAM  VER 1.3 (2) 2001/ THROTTLE UP    and also   SOUNDTRAXX (2) 2001     800109  K 28.  Does this make sense to anyone? I just need to know what wires are for what operations. There are no numbers by the long main terminal. I did find a set of 2 wires on the end that were tied off and not in use. I didn't find any reed switchs on the engine or the tender for whistle /bell......also no signs of a chuff switch either. Any and all info on this set up will be very very much appreciated. I'm just looking for a descent useable sound system.
