I have recently purchased a rail bus and trailer item Number 28461 Midwest Quarry and Mining and I have a couple if questions about  it.

I will be running this item in standard DC not DCC and was wondering if there is any thing I must do with regards to the decoder and the dummy plug as mentioned in the instructions.
At this time I would like to request a replacement set of gears in case I run into problems.
Is it possible for you to register this item for me as I live in Canada and am not near a Post Office to buy a USA stamp.

Thank you very much

I recently purchased a Bachmann On30 0-4-2 Porter engine with DCC. I am running it on a straight DC layout. The engine ran perfectly right out of the box. As long as the documentation states that the unit has a "NMRA compliant" dual-mode decoder, you should not have to do anything. As I stated above, I didn't have to do anything to the engine. Just put it on the track and away it went. Slow running is great - smooth, no jerking. Anyway, check your documentation to make sure about the decoder and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps,

I bought that same set with the idea of converting the trailer to a small single-truck trolley. Alas, the car is too small even for that so it will stay a railbus trailer. Sad
