So I still have that MTH Premier FEF-3 that I am pretty sure the Proto Board burned out as the locomotive has no response when on powered track. No lights, no indication the locomotive works. I plan on making this an ERR project. Before start this project though I want to a few things.
1. What should I be getting for this locomotive to make it run with TMCC? I saw on the ERR website they have some recommendations for upgrading Lionel Models but not MTH models.
2. Is there anything I should be aware of when "stripping" the old MTH parts out.
3. Is this actually worth the effort? I am not sure if I burned the board out or if I also somehow fired the locomotive motor?
Any thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
