Sounds like what Jay Leno would hire if he ever decided to move out of California.
I have mixed feelings about that. I'm not seeing how that happens only when the reverser triggers, but just because I haven't figured that part...
That could conceivably eliminate the problem. MRC says, in the event the locomotive is going forward until it hits the reversing section, then...
It's a point-to-loop. When the train is stopped at the terminal end, he has all week to decide which leg of the wye to take, and align the polarity.
Model Rectifier says this about those:
This unit was not primarily
designed for use with standard locomotives, and will cause a non decoder...
But the tender's on the wrong end!
Wait, I mean but the tender's on the right end!
There's a decoder at each end? It's a hardware problem. Disconnect the wire connecting the two ends, and m.u. them instead.
I believe my...
Are you offering him a wee belt? Isn't it a bit early in the day for that?
It just depends on how you feel about coupling using Giant Hand action.
Far be it from me to judge. I consider what someone does with his or her...
And if it's way too stiff, you may decide your uncoupler magnet needs to eat its Wheaties, too. But it's worth a try.
That's a great idea. Coil springs love to oscillate (ever ride in an Electra 225 without Dramamine?) but sponge rubber does not.
I've got some HO scale strikebreakers. Boy can they get N scale brotherhoods to the bargaining table!
Glass doors on a restroom?
Never mind. I didn't ask.
And you don't have to worry if the 3D print material is stout enough to take the torque, or hard enough to take the friction against the rail, if...
Is that really true? LOL! I hadn't heard that.
The reason the prototypes didn't normally pull trailer cars is Budd and GM said doing so would...
Nope. Just been considering trying it myself.
As I understand it, no engine/lash-up left the company's yard limits without a crummy.
Fill the spokes with modeling putty, and use the putty to extend the ends of the counterbalance. Sand smooth, and drill four larger holes and two...
Oh. Sorry, guys. No patent.
Sometimes, usually on a slight downgrade.
I agree. Springs can cause an oscillation which slack cannot. On a long train, that can cause problems.
