HUZZAH!

HCSader73 ·
Allow me the indulgence, please, to share this newbie's satisfaction and pleasure over having taken apart a distressed whistle tender, repaired, cleaned, and lubricated it so that it is now a perfectly functioning beauty, all without knowing what the deuce I was doing! The seller was selling this 2046W tender for parts, since there was a lot wrong with it. I bought it as a learning tool.I freely admit that I know nothing about electronics more than changing a light switch, and had no...

This is driving me nuts! Getting motor back into 2036 locomotive boiler!

HCSader73 ·
There must be a trick to this! I got the motor out with some effort, cleaned it up and repaired it. Now it runs. BUT for the life of me, I cannot get the bugger back into the body of the engine. The forward motor spreader post has a tap hole to be screwed to the boiler while resting in the curved fitting pictured: Fine and dandy. Now the back end of the motor has notches to accommodate the bar support, pictured That's fine and dandy too. Now the culprit: the small matter of the switch for...

224 Steamer does everything but run

HCSader73 ·
The head lamp lights up. The E-Unit cycles. Obviously we're getting power from the rollers. BUT the motor is dead as a door nail with no apparent damage to the motor. I acquired this 224 as junk. It did nothing when I obtained it. Since then I have cleaned, lubricated, oiled, and polished it, removed and realigned driving wheels and eccentric valve gear assemblies, rebuilt the E-Unit, replaced and rewired the head lamp, replaced brushes and brush springs, and rewired, preserving as much as...

MTH RS365SH motor variations F3 ABA

Gary Liebisch ·
In trying to identify the correct motor part number for a RailKing F-3 ABA diesel, does the shaft length measure from the motor housing to the tip of the worm gear, or is it just the measurement of the worm gear attachment only? For example, I can measure that my worm gear is 8 mm dia., and I can measure the distance from the motor housing to the tip of the worm gear as about 23 mm, but if I measure only the worm gear attachment, it is closer to 18 mm. Which is the spec that MTH uses? And if...

Hello, I have a MTH Santa Fe F-3 With Proto- Sound 3.0, and it is an A-B-A Set. I recently got a lot of passenger cars to go with it, but the engine can’t pull them all because only one A Unit is powered.

Atlas O Switches with DCS/AIU - Problem with Occasional Continuous Power to switch motor

DonnieD ·
I am wiring Atlas O switches to the MTH AIU per Atlas / AIU instructions. All the switches machines throw the turnouts as expected. However - while testing each switch, I find that on occasion, the switch motors keep getting power after the switch is activated through DCS. This is a momentary switch, so I can't figure out why the switch machine would keep getting power (again, not every time the switch is activated - it seems at random). I have wired four switches and all four have been...

2332 GG1 Motor Brush Replacement

Dan Padova ·
The motor brushes in the 2332 motor are housed in an enclosed holder. The only way to get them out and be able to clean the commutator is by removing the brush plate. However, the copper wire that is part of the motor winding is keeping me from being able to remove the plate. It simply isn't long enough to allow the brush plate to clear the brush plate screw bosses. Is there a trick to this or do I have to unsolder the wire ?

Yes, but most are "modifications" or "kit bashes" more than total "scratch builds" due to my use of the original "body".

Brief Update! I installed a running oval track around my city layout. Running a couple of Hafner Loco's w/Bub & AF coach cars. Added a couple of my favourite tinplate windups from the 20's to add scenery (*Marx Whee- Whiz Auto Race and Strauss Knockout Boxers) I love the sounds tinplate windups give! Such a hard, hitting the rails kinda grittiness. I got 4 new videos on my Youtube. Please enjoy. Photo and Video Links: https://www.flickr.com/photos/...le/with/15576519687/...
