Thanks, I am aware of True-Color.
This is for a brass locomotive so, I am looking for paints that are not water base.
Where can I get Scale Coat paints?
I ordered some from minuitman, and after 30 days tried to contact them about the order.
Two phone calls and...
Not sure what I might do.
I can not believe that a company that is this thin on people they did not figure out how run from home.
At least that...
Bill, I too have an order in to them.
See your PMs
You really have to look for any of that stuff in Phoenix, AZ.
you better up the value on the resistors to at least 1K
Don’t think 100 ohm will be enough to protect the LED.
Look at your frog points. I have seen where the width of the wheel tread will touch both rails right at the point. There is insulation there but...
Where are the motor brush leads- why is there solder on the brush caps?
The two motor leads should stick up through the gray plastic .
I don’t see the motor connections. Bet that the motor tabs are pressing up to the decoder pads on the bottom of the decoder. This is a problematic...
You said that these loco’s are drawing 1 amp while running, what is the amp draw when stalled?
This may be a problem. You need to stall the motor...

That one looks doable.
If you are talking about the ones that have the brass gearing, YES.
BUT, I don’t think is was worth the effort. Too much gear noise, and hard to...
I would unplug the decoder and ring out the pins of the locomotive./
Then rewire the plug to match the loco or switch wires in the loco to match...
The WOW IS much different?
John, I am sure they could, but the cost of manual soldering the wires to the board cost way more than a pick & place machine can place a NEXT18...
Nothing too new for me but knowing all the little things can keep a guy out of trouble.
Well you have shown me it can be done- hats off to you.
I just got a new soldering station (PACE) with a very fine point.
I will giving that a...
Well I would really like to see some one solder wires to the NEXT18 foot print pads.
I guess it might be done but I question that and would like...
Well I still prefer SoundTraxx Tsunami’s . I do use the ESU’s too.
I really don’t like the download time with the ESU. But it does give you a lot...
If you keep that up and pretty soon you will have code 40 rail.
