Mike Reagan Train Repair

Hi, does anyone know if Mike Reagan is still doing Lionel out of warranty train repair? I went to TW Trainworx website and could not find anything or a contact number. IF he is doing repair could someone please pass on contact info.

Thanks!!

His last visit was Feb 22, so I suspect he may be traveling.  you can do to his user profile and send an email to him, his email is in his profile.  His user name is Mikado.

I would like to know how Mike fixed your Docksider when you get it back. Lionel is no longer stocking the reverse boards that go in these engines, which is too bad because they are nice little engines. No easy repair for the 10,000's of those engines out there.

I don't know how many are out there, but as of now a lack of parts is why he hasn't returned it.  

May God Bless us all.

One way it to fix the old reverse board.  Normally what goes on those are the drivers, as I recall they're garden variety complementary transistors.

He was going to rework my MTH Turbotrains but his time was consumed by his current projects and we agreed to just send the train back to me.  The MTH Turbotrains remain inoperable.  20141110_174926-1

What is wrong with it?  I repair MTH trains. G

Folks do need to keep in mind, though, that Mike keeps plenty busy (and often on the road to any or all corners of the country), with his TW Trainworx duties, so don't necessarily expect overnight repairs. But to answer the original question: Yes, Mike is still doing repairs.

Its best that you read my old thread:

The story continued beyond this to several more repairs by an MTH tech. Essentially the ten pin frail wires are failing and not getting through to the slave rear power car.  Many repairs later, bad again.

  I give MTH praise for everything else, except this design, and their miserable handling of this.
