1  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: BACHMANN THREE-TRUCK SHAY (82698) - DCC SOUND? on: July 06, 2010, 05:05:22 PM
This is truly just any advice,  I have one that whistles and runs fine in both directions using a small LGB pack. My second one lights up and sounds fine but will not run.  I have had to return 5 out of 8 engines I own. I know that it will at least (oh sorry) Is supposed to give you basic chuff sound and the correct two forward toots and three reverse toots at starts.  I believe  you can add reed switches or bachmanns  locomotive control system for more sounds.  Check out the other  3 truck entries.  There seems to be allot of misfit toys out of the box. You ship it back to them at your expense.  Add that possible cost into your purchase price.  I hope other more experienced voices can help us both.
2  Discussion Boards / Large / 3 truck shay won't run. Lights, sound, no movement! on: July 03, 2010, 11:47:31 AM
Hi,
I just bought a brand new 3 truck shay -
I lubed it up, put it on the track and gave it power.
Great sound, bright lights, BUT THE LOCOMOTIVE WON'T MOVE!

This is my second 3 truck shay, and the first worked fine right out of the box.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? 

I really don't want to send it back to Philly for service.

Thanks,
Dave
