Evening everyone, Yes, this is a question about very old low budget equipment. I just purchased a Spirit of 76 locomotive made by Tyco/Mantua. I bought the locomotive and a caboose in that same theme a few days ago. The seller told me the loco doesn’t run and sure enough it doesn’t. I have two others in that theme as well. One will power up and the other is dead. I pulled out some SF war bonnet locos from the same time and they are fine. Is there a common failure issue in this era equipment? The War Bonnet locos have many hours on them but seem no worse for the wear. The 76 that I got new back in the day is a purposely low time unit as I didn’t want it to wear out. The two that don’t run I haven’t spent much time troubleshooting. Ideas? Thanks. Rick H.
