Very nice. If centipede tender, won’t like 2 switches connected at the diverging track ends (crossover). Clunky on Atlasswitches, but other than occasional tender plug coming loose, a very nice runner and beautifully executed.
The most economical upgrade to this engine is the PS 32 .......the original PS2 5 volt system is suspect for failure. Doing the PS32 upgrade also gets you away from having to deal with a battery.......Here’s a video of a PS2 5 volt Hudson that GGG (George) set up a board swap for me to PS 32 ....for my application, simple plug and play swap....now this engine is a proven performer...........Pat
What type of battery is utilized in this engine? Is it the rectangular battery that resembles a 9v battery or the one that resembles multiple double AA's wrapped together? I just purchased the engine and want a new battery waiting to be installed.
I recently bought one at a good price. It had operational sound board but was intermittent. Determined loose connectivity at the male/female tether between engine and tender. Went so far as to replace the ten pin board and regained all continuity between 12 pin main board and ten pin board in tender…..but still do not have sound. Trying to connect with local repair service to see what next step is. It is getting a little over my head now. Thanks.
If you’ve replaced all the parts you can think of, and the engine side PCB 10 pin connector is ok, top suspect would be audio portion of PS2 board. If this is beyond your scope of repairs, contact GGG ( George ) on this forum. He can fix your Dreyfus. As he has mentioned on this thread, repair board is a little difficult to fit but doable. If you’re out of options to try, I’d send the whole locomotive & tender to George for repair……the boards to fix that engine are currently available, but the supply is limited……
