What is the radius of your curves?  If they are 18" (or less) it is likely that the loco is binding a bit on the curves due to its long wheelbase.

What is the radius of the curved section of a #4, #5and #6 turnout? I know that on a 44561/44562 it is the same as an 18".

Should just be interesting, considering she is quite popular.

Maybe the owner reprogrammed the decoder address. Have you tried entering the locomotive number as its address?

Greetings all -

I have a Bachmann Plus Class J 4-8-4.  The locomotive has started to lose speed on curves.  On straight track, the speed is good, then the speed will drop in a curve and then the normal speed resumes on straight track.

I clean the wheels and the track.  The drivers and side rods don't seem to be binding.  Even though the speed drops, the locomotive is smooth through turns, so I don't believe it's "out of quarter".

I appreciate your thoughts!

Many thanks!

Large Scale Gordon has been discussed countless times, and it's been stated countless times that he's much too big for Large Scale. I'm surprised this is still being brought up.

Other characters that have been discussed countless times in the past for HO Scale include Lady and Diesel 10, and stated countless times that they can't happen for reasons stated countless times.

Reset the decoder
Resetting the sound decoder CVs to their factory default value is a two-step procedure.

   1)  Program 8 to CV 8
   2)  Cycle power to the decoder by turning power to the track off and back on.

After about six-seconds upon restoring power the headlight will blink 16 times indicating that the CVs were successfully reset. However, if sound or light come on immediately upon restoring power, the decoder did not successfully reset. Repeat the two-step procedure.


Click Here for Bachmann HO GP30 EMD 567D3 Turbo Sound Value Equipped  supported CVs and their default value document.

Next ----

If decoder reset not a solution then check motor wiring

Remove locomotive shell. Locate, pull off and reseat one at a time the black plastic clip holding in place each of the two wires connecting the motor to the circuit board. Be sure the bare end of the wire is in good contact with the solder pad on the circuit board and remains in contact during replacement of the clip.

Because of the hollow space under the E-Z Track, it sounds really noisy when the trains are running. I bought some foam window insulation from Lowe's (1/2" wide x 1/4" thick) and I will stick that under the track before I lay it. I tapped a Sharpie along the top of the track and it is definitely quieter where the part with the foam is stuck under there.
