Im having nagging problems with an MTH B&O GP35.It will operate normally for a while then stop. After it stops, it falls off the radar of DCS. Check track. Engine not found. Etc. I wait a while, fiddle with it and eventually it comes back to life. Then we repeat this cycle again.
This is a 3/2 loco and there are these metal strips on the truck.
I have to cover them up with tape just to run through a switch. Otherwise they touch things they shouldn't and short out Can they be removed?
I've tried cleaning the rollers, cleaning the track, resetting the loco, editing the loco #, etc. Im out if ideas.
