Music and Model Trains

Arnold D. Cribari ·
Music and model trains is a great combination. A few minutes ago, I was running trains on my layout listening to Willie Nelson's 16 Biggest Hits CD. Suddenly, I heard what I think is the greatest train song ever written. Any guesses what that song is? Here's a hint: it was written by a man named Goodman. I bet you still don't know what song it is. I won't torment you any more. In my opinion, the best train song ever written is: City of New Orleans! Great catchy tune and great, interesting...

MTH Railking Proto Sound 3 Santa Fe 4-6-0 Drawbar Disconnecting

Ricky S ·
Hello, I have a MTH Railking Proto Sound 3 Santa Fe 4-6-0 steam engine. When I run this engine, sometimes the wireless drawbar connecting the locomotive to the tender disconnects. When it does, the engine jerks, the sounds go out, and lights and smoke go on and off uncontrollably. I turn off the power and re attach it and it is good for another few minutes. Does anyone know if there is a way to make the drawbar connect more stable so it does not disconnect? If not, that's ok. Have a good...
