I have been collecting Trains as early as I can remember. I started with American Flyer and switched to O scale because Lionel was doing nothing to help the S scale operator collector. After many years, in 2004 I got my interest back while recovering from by-pass surgery. I set up an O scale layout in my basement on Staten Island NY. We then moved to Buckeye, Arizona and I had to down size so I decided to set up a small 10’ x 11’ layout in the casita. Because of the small size of the space, I went with S scale layout. I have some American Models, Lionel S, MTH and S Helper engines. My question is as follows:
I have an S Helper F7 ABA unit and cannot get it to run. It makes the Diesel sound but does not move. I called MTH and they will not look at the engine because I purchased it from S Helper. They could not even recommend a company that would look at my engine. Does anyone have any ideas or solutions to this problem? If you would rather call to give me verbal instructions, please call me at 718-812-1286.
