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?

 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 was wondering has anyone modified the copper contacts that touch the bottom of the frame halves? I was thinking i could solder a wire to that and tap into the bottom of the frame, any suggestions would be appreciated.

 I have a Reading sd-45 and i tried to couple it to a lifelike gp-20 with the truck mounted coupler and it keeps derailing the gp-20, i tried using a long shank coupler no change. The curves i am using are 11.25 any suggestions.

Everyone wants them, how come you wont make them? We all need them for our soundcar projects, hence thats why they are always sold out.

 How come nobody makes a do it yourself install decoder for o scale? Im thinking along the lines of some of the n and ho decoders but made for o scale. I think this would be a good idea if someone wanted to buy a cheap loco and install for themselves, and then just add a speaker.

Has anyone made a dummy out of one of the new f-3 b units? I want to save the original chassis so does anyone know what trucks to use? I also want to put a sound decoder in the b unit.
