Thanks Joe.

I've got the screw out of the fuel tank but am not sure how to actually remove the fuel tank. Does it slide? How does it come away from the chassis?

Len;

Thanks for the info. The couplers are removed but it seems like there's something else holding the body shell to the chassis. I'll take a look at the drawing you specified though. thanks

Guys;

Unfortunately my RS-3 took a header of the layout,  Angry and the front truck seems to have disconnected from the chassis (its all in tact, just not connected to the locomotive). Does anybody know or have simple distructions for taking the body shell of the chassis so I can re-connect the truck?  Huh?

Thanks

Dutchbuilder;

Thanks for the input. It could be thermal, I'll check CV68 and see what it says. Again it is strange that this would crop up over a long period of time.

Kewatin;

Thanks for the input. I'll have to check those connections, cold solder joints are a bear. Strange though that it would develop after such a long period of time, but its worth a shot anyway.

EBTNUT; Thanks for the input. Cleaned all wheels last night. I noticed that the contact between the wheels and the pick ups appeared to be soiled. I cleaned those also, and adjusted the contact pressure, I'm not seeing any signs of wear on the axels or pick ups. I tried reprogramming the decoder and that didn't make any difference either. The engine stalls at random places on the track whether its over a switch or clear track. I'll definitely clean the tracks again, but dirty tracks don't seem to be the problem as all 5 other loco's do not stall.

Hey Tiebreaker;

I am running MRC Advanced2 with an 8 amp booster. Track feeds are about every 6 feet of track. Each segment is insulated at both ends with the feed in the middle (or approximately so). But the issue is sort of random.

Thx

All;

I have Bachmann's Alco 2-6-0 with the Tsunami sound decoder installed. I have recently been encountering stalling problems with this loco. It seems to randomly stall, no sound, no functions, essentially DOA. After a few minutes it seems to take off again with the previous throttle settings, it also seems to randomly flash the head light. I also had to replace at least two speakers within the lifetime of the loco (I've finally found a speaker that seems to be hanging in there, my dealer thought that the sound CV's were too high for the speaker). I've seen discussions about CV 11 the DCC time out, does anybody know what this should be set to?

I'm running 6 locomotives on approximately 132 running feet of track, the other 5 don't seem to have the stalling problem (including an ancient Pacific 4-6-2 that was up graded to DCC).

Any suggestions?

Thx
Tomfro
