OK, I tried to run my Legacy Scale Mike (MoPac 1310, #6-11284) today for the first time in several months. When last parked in the engine house, the engine ran fine, smoked up a storm, and sounded great on my TMCC system.
Today, the smoke unit is not working, the sounds cut out, and it keeps climbing off the track at one point.
- The engine will start OK, but the sound will often cut out at some point in the run.
- The cab light is blinking repeatedly in three blinks.
- The smoke unit is not smoking or blowing.
- At one point--on straight track--the front drivers hop the rail to the right. No other engine or car exhibits similar misbehavior, and this one didn't do so the last time it ran.
I don't have the manual on this engine, and I don't have Legacy, just TMCC. I guess the 3 blinks means something, but I don't know what.
I'd appreciate any information/hints/ideas anyone can provide.
