What does work on the locomotive?  Does the clicking sound start as soon as you supply power?  Are you running in conventional mode or with a DCS system?  If you don't have the complete number, how about the cab number?

So NONE of the three Mohawks you have are operational?  Or only one has a problem?  30-1165-1 was a Mohawk; one of the very first steam locos MTH released with PS2.  If you go to mthtrains.com and use the product locator, you can search for your locos by the road name, and number on the side of the cab.  Please keep us posted!

Creep, coast, and pull.  We're not talking about cold fusion here.

No I have 4 mohawk locomotive 3 are ps2 and 1 is locosound.The other 2 ps2 work just one messed up.I went on a little trip to little choo choo.I had a repairman work on it.Turns out had a bad battery that some how messed up the ps2 board.He got it to run with lights and sounds.But the smoke unit is not attached any more.It got a new battery in it now and thats o.k.Maybe some day I will find a way to fix it so the smoke unit works.

When I first put on the track and powered up.Every thing worked but when I pressed the direction button.Every thing would shut down and then start back up again.So I turn it off and move the locomotive to another part of the layout.I was gonna power it up and let it set for a while.When I powered up again nothing but click click click click.I took to little choo choo and their repair man worked on it.He got it to operate now only thing is the smoke unit is not attacked.Some how the ps2 board got messed up.And it has a weak battery.Well he put a new battery in it.He did fixed to were it will operate.I just wished the smoke unit could be made to work.But that is for another day.Unless you know of a way to get it to work.If so I am listening.

The smoke can obviously be made to work, but given that someone had it apart, that's clearly the first place I'd be looking.  He could have sorted it to the frame during testing and killed the FET on the board, or it might just be a wiring issue.

So should I try another repairman?

Well, if he screwed up the smoke, he should fix it.

Well I will think about it.He has done other repairs for me.He has a pretty good track record with me.But for right now it will have to wait.I have a few other things I need to take care of.
