Remove locomotive shell. Locate, pull off and reseat one at a time the black plastic clip holding in place each of the two wires connecting the motor to the circuit board. Be sure the bare end of the wire is in good contact with the solder pad on the circuit board before and when replacing the clip.

Test run before replacing the shell.

Hey all, I bought an alco s4 with sound a while back and it has been working just fine until recently it suddenly stopped working and started acting very strangely.

When put on the track the engine lights up, but no sound. Headlight function works fine. Put in reverse, it will move just as normal. Put in forward, it hums for a second (electrical hum not on board sound), then the headlight flashes 10 times and it won't move. All the while, no sound. I'm wondering if this might be a decoder fault? Or maybe an internal short circuit somewhere?

I've tried resetting the decoder (set CV8 value to 8 ) - headlight flashed 16 times and address was defaulted back to 3, but it still does the same thing.

Any help is greatly appreciated, I'm stumped...

AE32028 Decoder No.

Thanks Bill!

You're exactly right, you really know your stuff.  I ordered the chassis so hopefully the train will be under the tree for Christmas.

The exact replacement is not available, you will have to use one of the others,

This one will work:

Or this:

Both have the Version 5 chassis and are an exact fit, but might have minor paint variations. I seem to remember that your 90015 RGS loco has the all black underframe, cylinders, and saddle, so probably the second one above.  The good news is that whichever one you choose they are both currently on sale.

Have fun with the repair!

rocket science, i don't think it was the older white boxed model .as i am into M.B KLEIN all the time and they don;t sell stock that old.they at present have no listings at all for the J. in aronx's favour,i did check BACHMANN'S parts stock ,and yes there are no power cylinder parts available. out of stock/ it does sound strange ,as he said he sent $90 along with his 2 locos for repair.perhaps he is a younger person & disposed his warranty card &sales receipt. bachmann's service has always sent back my loky saying it was bench run &ok. one thing i have noticed over the yrs is that the sleeve in the original packing that slides over the jewel case will interfear with the linkage if not carefull.this has happened to me on a few occasions with my heavy mts,and i have had to put the linkage back with considerable i just leave the sleeves most of us know in N SCALE  modelling ,because of its size one must be carefull.also i don't understand his reasoning about accepting another model or models of same value,rather than have original investment of 2 models plus $90 for repair services and still have 2 models that don't work i have had the service dept step up and replace a heavy mtn loco with a 2-10-2,because of no stock to fix. to use your cliche its not rocket science as to what i would do in his case.i guess in closing some folks have money to burn/ regards&later KEWATIN

Paxton might be Bachmann's first model to have painted siderods. There's also a chance they may make them plastic. I'd rather have them painted.

You can substitute any length regular E-Z Track section for the "B-B" track sections and bumpers or not use them as they are not part of the auto-reversing circuit.  Add auto-reversing track sections to  increase the length of the auto-reversing run.

I purchased the Point-to-Point reversing track set to include a trolley in my Christmas Village. The system works well, however I have a question as to whether there might be a modification that I could make. My layout is only about 8 feet in length. The way the track set is manufactured essentially makes a foot on each side useless. The trolley cannot move all the way to the "bumper" but ends its route at the beginning of the connection between the "A-B" track and the "B-B" track. Is there any way to shorten the "B-B" track and ignore the bumpers? I could then just add another two pieces of auto reverse track in between and the trolley would move from one end of the village to the next. Any thoughts?
