sent the TIU and WIU to MTH.
The problem has been found.
Seems the center pin in the rectangular plug on the USB CABLE had broken off and was inside the cable end.
Jason at MTH said this is only the second time he has seen this.
So, it’s repaired; tested and on its way back.
By fedex-from Michigan by way of Ohio, and Indiana-which means a trip through Illinois before it gets to Missouri.
I sent the package to MTH via THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE...it cost $17 with insurance-took three days.
Jason sent it to fedex 6/25
expected delivery 7/2.
Must have only cost about $2.08 to ship fedex.
So, I’ll get it in time to go on vacation
which means 4 more days of no train running
but I’m seeing Harry S. Truman’s Home and Museum and a few other places before I die..even if it kills me(technically-it’ll be the wife for dragging her to “History” on her vacation—she said the same thing about Lincoln-but admitted she enjoyed it—I’m hoping for the same outcome...if I don’t post in July-launch an investigation 🚂😎)
