Are there prototypes or design goals for the 18' On30 cabooses? Thanks.

Can you provide any information on the new derrick car's history and prototype?

Thanks to all. Much appreciated. After looking at the photo, I realize that my decoder actually precedes the B2TS series. I do have the B2TS in one of my Shays. It has the plug-in pins per your picture, that plug into the Bachmann board. The decoder in my older shay is a TCS 312D48, REV AR2. It is hard-wired - no pins to plug in to the Bachmann board. Any help with that would really be appreciated.  Thanks.

Also, I have some 1 farad, 5.5 v capacitors, if that would be an easier solution?

Sorry, meant Reg Barron!

Thanks for the reply, Red Barron. I cheecked out the forum you suggested, but it's open only to registyered members, and not accepting registrations. Any ideas?

I have one of the earliest On30 Shays, with the original B2TSLC Soundtraxx  wired decoder. Current pickup has gotten sporadic, so I want to install a Current Keeper ("Keep-Alive") board, but Soundtraxx tech support can't provide information on the attachment points on this old decoder.

Can you?

Alternatively, is there any fix for the poor pickup?

8  Discussion Boards / On30 / Dead drivers on two On30 Forneys on: September 11, 2015, 08:14:31 PM
My Forneys both pick up on the rear slider trucks, but neither does on either of the 4 main drivers. Can't see any loose or disconnected wires on the main board in the fuel bunker or the small card on the bottom under the Sound on Board cover. Have cleaned the back sides of the drivers where the contacts ride, and the contacts themselves. They worked a year ago before I moved to another state and started a new layout. Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Thanks, Royce.  I'd think a vertical boiler is its own steam dome, right? I think that's a good possibility for the lack of a water hatch. Also makes it more of a shame that Bachmann has quit including the firewood loads they used to. Now I have to make my own and glue them over the coal. Oh, well, that's what modeling is supposed to be about anyway, I guess. At least, the real wood looks better than what Bachmann used to supply.

Thanks for the photo and detail reference, Hamish. Also, good question about water, Railtwister. I'd think with the boiler in the cab, there would be a way to vent a pop-off valve through the roof.

The Bachman model is almost a dead ringer for the A. W. Stevens Lumber #1. Other than the curvature of the running boards, and the length of the bridge pipe between the steam feeder pipes, I don't see much difference.

Thanks for your tip, Rich. I was hoping for a little more detail, though.

This model appears to have a vertical boiler inside the cab, but I haven't seen any pictures of other Heislers configured that way. That might explain why there's no steam dome, but also makes me wonder why there's no boiler vent in the cab roof. Any ideas, anyone?

What prototype was used for the Stearns Heisler?

There could also be a problem with alignment of the running gear. The yoke that connects the cylinders is a little flimsy and prone to cracking, which can leave the cylinder(s) misaligned. Check to see that both cylinders have the same alignment. If not, try some way to clamp the misaligned one while gluing it in place. I have done this with success on one of my Forneys. Also check for bent or misaligned connecting rods, etc.

What prototype was used for developing the new 18' cars?
15  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: Warranty? on: November 03, 2012, 08:40:31 PM
No problem. I just can't find a warranty statement in the box or on the web site. Is there one?
