I have an older MTH Railking engine with a weird type of issue, hopefully someone has a good idea how this can get going.
Model: 6-8-6 S-2 Turbine Steam Engine w/Proto-Sound 2.0 with BCR installed, probably item #30-1308-1 though I think it came from a RTR set, I do not have the original box/paperwork.
- it WORKS (runs fine) on tracks that are not connected to a DCS TIU
- it DOES NOT WORK (no indication of life) on tracks that have a DCS TIU connected
I picked up the engine from a friend a few years ago, it's always runs fine on tracks conventionally
but I was recently able to pickup a TIU & handheld and I wanted to see it run via handheld.
I tested other engines (PS3) and they run fine on the tracks, so I'm not sure why the turbine
isn't getting found by the handheld.
Here's a video of it running pre-TIU, note I tested it again today on a non-TIU track to make sure all was OK (after testing on TIU track).
