    Recieved a Micro Trains runner pack, of 4 Santa Fe
    tank cars. Of them,I’ve got one car that appears to
    have a warped frame! Won’t stay on the track! Trucks
    sit at a slightly funny angle, so flanges ride across top of rails!
    Did manage to loosen truck bolster pin, so trucks ride a bit better.
    Still not perfect, but at least the car tracks now, forward and back, at
    front or rear of about a 20 car train, on 11” curves! One of 3 small N Scale
    layouts! Just the only one I have easy access to at the moment! When knee
    returns to usability, I’ll be able to access the other 2 layouts!

    Is it possible to get a replacement frame from Micro Trains?
    Asking here, but also going to contact MT about it.
    Haven’t yet, but it’s next on my list of things to do!
    Information much appreciated!
    Thanks.

    Interesting. I had few of the recent Atlas 11K that were all warped in the same spot. Easier to just return them and find others.
