Another thing to throw out there and maybe get some ideas. Most ho scale steam engines do not seem to have really good electrical picups on the tenders. Does anyone have any ideas to improve the pickup of electrical power over the conventional spring copper strips riding on the wheel axel.
I have several dummy engines and tenders that have this set up and all of them seem to loose power to the sound decoders during operation. Does anyone make a truck similar to the E.O.T. lights that are very expensive? I have looked around but so far no luck. I am open for ideas and would appreciate any input on this problem.
