N / n scale thomas
July 04, 2021, 12:27:53 PM
Has anyone put a decoder in one of the new thomas engines? The only directions i see online is for a Tomix made loco. also when the loco runs in standard dc it stops and stalls all the time even on clean track. I was thinking of adding a coach behind Thomas with extra pickups.

I recently had a f-7 shell given to me, the question is will this fit on a gp-40 chassis. the f7 shell is new but the gp 40 is about three years old.

 If i were to take a Microscale sheet of decals to a Staples or Office Depot, could they print them on my own decal paper?

How come Bachmann sells their trucks with no wheels? What wheels will be compatable with these trucks?

If you redo the drive mechanism dont double the price, leave some locos for the starters.

 Has anyone used the pick up pieces off of a f-7 on the trucks of a sd-45? I know the wheel arrangement is different but it might work.
I tried wiring directly to frame but still losing contact.

I have a similar problem, it seems like i am not getting the power i need to pull a train, i adjusted the cv,s and no change, could it be a bad motor.

Does this loco have the same power pickups as the older spectrum model? If thats the case give up, i hard wired those copper connections underneath the frame using very flexible wire directly to the frame, still have same problems as described she is a shelf queen now. The prices for these locos are way overpriced.
