1  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Problem with 4-6-2 Pennsy Pacific on: December 04, 2008, 03:17:21 PM
The light stays on and I can hear the motor humming.  When the engine stalls, I can pick it up and move the front and rear wheels a little but the center wheels are locked-up solid.  They will come loose with a little wiggling of the rear wheels.  Then, when I put the engine back on the tracks it will move and inch or two and then everything jams up again.
2  Discussion Boards / HO / Problem with 4-6-2 Pennsy Pacific on: December 04, 2008, 11:42:01 AM
I just got a Sprectrum 4-6-2 Pennsy Pacific and there seems to be an issue with the main drive wheels binding.  The engine moved a few inches then came to a halt.  It's getting plenty of power, and a diesel engine I have runs fine on the track.  It looks like the wheels are out of sequence between the two sides and slipping out of position.

Is there a correct alignment procedure or diagram that I could use to get the wheels into the correct position?  Also, should the wheels be slipping around within the axle or are they broken?
3  Discussion Boards / Plasticville U.S.A. / HO Scale Isaly's for Pittsburghers on: November 25, 2008, 02:40:41 PM
Having grown up in Pittsburgh, I was thrilled to see that MTH had released an Isaly's store, but not so thrilled to see it was O scale only.  I really wanted an Isaly's store under the tree, and with my platform being all HO the MTH building was out.  I got a hold of a well-worn Plasticville supermarket (three windows and door on the right), and shaved off the Plasticville and Supermarket writing.  I then made a new window insert strip that has posters for Klondikes, Skyscrapers, and chipped ham in the windows, and Isaly's decals for the front and vertical sign post.

If anyone is interested in the decals, I can send you a PowerPoint file that has them.  If you can open and print a PowerPoint presentation you can print them out.
