Paulie, this was a common problem with the MTH Railking sets. Some even had problems with melting roofs from the extreme heat (one of mine did this). What you need to do is place a strip of reflective tape on the inside of the roof, particularly above the lights. This will prevent any damage. Some of us even removed a few windows, or re-applied them so they would look half way open, to allow greater air circulation.

Fortunately, MTH has already included a fix with most of its subways- the windows begin to fall out within weeks of purchase.

Barry why do you feel the need to post these wise little remarks all the time? You are not a board moderator, mind your own business. It's bad enough they let you get away with this all the time. Maybe your next book should be on Sarcasm?

MCD4X4, since you seem to be an expert in O Gauge Subways, in your opinion, Lionel or MTH?

I don't consider myself an expert in subways but I do prefer MTH over LIONEL subways.

Due to all 8 design issues, the R-40 was the last MTH subway I bought. No more.

I received my R 17 set in February and haven't had an issue with the way it runs, its lights, or excessive heat. The only isue I had was the color. (which I mentioned in another thread.) The set was advertised as RED but it arrived MAROON. I do like the maroon and decided to keep it but I was disappointed that it did not arrive in the advertised RED color.

Does anyone have any complaints about the new MTH r17 Subways. Just received mine yesterday and the build quaility seems to be pretty cheap, the Engine Unit gets very hot on the top, and the couplers stick open. Anyone else with these issues?

Check Track ~ R17 Redbird Subway Car 6511

Pat C... ·
Cant move my R17 Redbird from Inactive to Active list. With power applied, Engine Car lights up with no Sound, and I dont hear that familiar MTH Click on Power Up (should I) "Engine Not on Track" message when I try to move engine to Active List. Pulled off case, found nothing unusual, Battery read 7.5V, with no load. Cant do a Feature/Factory Reset, cause I cant get the engine to the Active List. Is there a way to do an engine Reset, other than using the Remote ??? Was reluctant to Delete,...

If this is the 5V version board could be dead. Interior lights on track power. Do the Headlights on front come on? I assume not. If dead your recourse is to have it upgraded with PS-32 board as repair. I do this, email in profile. G
