We have a MTH Turbine which is driving us nuts trying to figure out why the rear truck(s) derail all the time, even on 120 degree curves! It is the MTH 20-2185-1 Union Pacific Veranda Turbine w/ Proto Sound Cab # 61. Makes no difference if it is running light or pulling a freight. Always derails on all but totally straight track. Has anyone else had this problem with the #61 and if so, were you able to fix it? Thanks!

I have the PS3 Premier Veranda that had the same problem. The plate that the 2 power trucks are mounted on had a bow in it. At the time Midge did not have a replacement plate. I removed the trucks and plate so I could remove the bow in the plate and then reassembled the trucks and plate and it now operates without the derailing problem. Midge did get a new plate to me after a few months which I am holding in case the problem happens again.
