Help a rookie... I just placed a new ALCO ABA consist on the track (DCS). The powered A unit's headlight doesn't light except when it is running in reverse. What am I doing incorrect?
#20-20846-4 (Non-powered A Unit)
20-20845-1 (Powered A Unit)
20-20845-3 (Unpowered B Unit)
When powered A Unit is running forward the headlight and cab are not lit … when the consist is running "backwards" (i.e. powered unit is pushing the consist) the Non-powered "A" unit has its headlight and cab lit.
Thanks for your help, Dan
If you run the powered A unit by itself, do you stil have the issue?
Tony, we solved the problem. The engine was disassembled when I had it " weathered" by Dave Minarik (Mercer Junction). A wire was simply switched. An easy fix.
Thanks for your response,
