If it is a non sound unit it will have a 2 function decoder:

This may help. you can use a an adapter cable to plug an eight pin decoder into the socket. You will however need to install a speaker and wire it to the decoder.

Butch - it sounds like you know what you are doing. My first instinct is always to do a factory reset on the decoder. If that doesn't work maybe have a look under the hood to see if any of the wires have lost contact with the board. The little black plastic wire holders on the decoder come loose sometimes. If you don't get results you should contact the Bachmann Service department for help. Call Laura Harris the service manager during normal operating hours.

This may seem like a dumb question but I assume you are aware that the reverse loop module only works for DCC?

Sorry but parts are no longer available for the Hogwarts loco. Give the service department a call and let them know what is wrong and perhaps they can help.

Limited run basically means it is a resin casting that does not involve creating expensive steel molds thus it is only available for a short period of time. If the buildings sell well we produce more - if they don't well......

If you don't hear it it's not there. Sometimes documentation can have misprints that are eventually corrected as you noted. SoundTraxx provides the documentation and is responsible for updating it so if you note things that don't seem correct feel free to contact them and bring it to their attention. Soundvalue decoders do not have all the features of a Tsunami2 decoder - it is a different processor that is more economical to manufacture from a price point perspective thus it is not as full featured as the more expensive Tsunami2.

Unfortunately the cost of tooling these days would make a plastic kit a bit high for a beginner market like the Thomas range. Good examples are Tidmouth Sheds and Knapford station. They are fairly large but you can get an idea of what plastic kits might cost. The resin buildings are limited run and don't require a tooling investment which is pretty much why we do them.

When we do another production run of these cars I'm sure PRR will be included.
