Weathering Removal.

Got a secondhand loco with some heavy weathering.

The original owner said that the weathering is some powder and acrylic paint with a light spray of Matt varnish.

How do I get this off???

Thieving *word censored* sent eBay fake tracking information and told them he had proof I had received the track so eBay closed the dispute in his favour. He then refused to communicate with me...

Re: Walthers 130 DCC Turntable PROBLEM

By--pass the built in decoder, if you can drive the motor on DC fit a loco chip and drive it by hand. If you put an isolating switch in the wiring and connected it as DC you could drive it on address 0 if that's set up on your system, it would be a bit short lived without the isolating switch :( Th...

If all of the contacts are clean that means it can be a problem with the PC board in the control box. Unfortunately we d...

The dreaded CV29

This is a very useful page for setting the value of CV29. It N gauge but works on HO/OO.

I had a loco that would not run on DC and ran "backwards" on DCC.

All operating correctly now :lol:
