Re: Bachmann class 37

If it's new, return it to the supplier for replacement or refund. It's faulty.

Re: Best way to wire up test track?

Thin wire is all you need, so whatever you use for droppers would probably do. There is no real definition of what constitutes dropper wire.

Re: Laying track in warm weather

You can run virtually any amount of track, up to about a double garage size - and maybe more, from a starter set controller as the track consumes no power.

Re: dcc Run aways

You could try turning off dc running in CV29 and make sure the track, wheels and pickups are spotlessly clean. You could also consider fitting filters (sometimes called terminators) to the track to eliminate voltage spikes.
