    Runaway Train

    Well, my runaway train saga is ongoing. BMI said to reset the decoder and the controller. I did both and the loco seemed to be back in good order. After an hour or so of running over a couple of days, I sensed that slight change in sound indicating a slight speed up and subsequent slowdown...

    Converting Ho Layout To N Scale.

    Converting Ho Layout To N Scale.

    Flex track isn't an option. I am using Bachmann EZ Track.
