Help Finding Weaver EMD 40-2 Operating Manual

Basil ·
I recently picked up a beautiful Weaver 1320LP Soo Line EMD 40-2.  This is my first model locomotive.  I bought it used and, naturally, it didn't come with the operating manual.  I've searched online using Google, but no luck in locating a manual.  Does anyone have a manual they could share or sell?  I'm also open to any suggestions to assist in finding one.  I want to use this beauty to it's full capacity and maintain it properly and fear I cannot do either...

How do I paint delrin plastic?

Steven Michael ·
Okay, so I was visiting a local O scale two rail layout, and the owner had two Weaver GP38-2s running. He had detailed them very nicely, and they looked nothing like the basic models they came as. Many years ago my dad purchased three of these engines decorated in Conrail, and I too plan on detailing mine. In order to get started on this, the handrails need to be repainted to blue rather than their current black. These handrails are made out of delrin plastic, so if I paint them with Floquil...

Weaver GP38-2 issue

Steven Michael ·
Okay, this is a weird one. One of my three Weaver GP38-2s intermittently has problems maintaining speed. It occasionally drops to half its normal speed, which for some reason causes the horn to blow in the sound car. I'm not sure whether it's a mechanical or electrical issue, but I have never heard of an issue like this. I will also mention that I will NOT be upgrading these units with command control, unless I can find an old EOB kit.

The Nickel Plate was one of the first railroads to adopt the concept of road to rail trailers during the late steam era. It turned out to be a highly successful business operation for the railroad which eventually caught on in the rest of the industry. Modern intermodal trains are the direct descendant of the early TOFC trains. The...
