you can't upload pix to the Bachmann site from your computer. you have to use an internet account like photo bucket or flikr.

Use granulated piers, them cover them up with paper mâché or something. See DieselD199's most recent video to see what I mean.

smoke is not good. it means something is overheating, which usually means there is too much current for whatever is hot. in other wordz, a SHORT in your locomotive.

best to park the locomotive and try another.
