Re: Troubleshooting Motors

Power unit gearbox not running in response to power. I slipped the chassis out of the ICE. The nose piece is just glued on?

Troubleshooting Motors

It’s been a few years since running train and I have a couple loco motors that don’t turn.

Track is clean, loco clean, and it’ll try to change direction with lots of humming.

Is there a safe way to help a T-motor turn without breaking it?

Thanks in advance.

Re: TZN Trundled Test Track Layout

Quick pic of the module construction. The bolted blocks hold 1” pipe legs with height adjustable feet. For my application, I located some low profile appliance casters. A 1” wooden dowel drilled to accommodate the caster will suffice. The module is very light and can be lifted by one person to B...

Introductions

I'm Philip from the original site and enjoy fine scale modeling. I received my first T set and 103 a year ago at Christmas and just started a dry run for a real layout today. Always made weekend layouts. To prevent the cat from enjoying my T while I'm sleeping or at work (in between days off), I use...

Re: Congratulations Doug!

Thanks Doug for allowing us to have a forum again.

I was waiting for David to fix the old site and then received an email. Too bad. We had a lot of great ideas and images on that site.

By now your 3D printer finished a complete Santa Claus sleigh and all the reindeer in T.

Re: Good News: Possibility of new track planning software

I understand that AnyRail is the only tracking planning software currently available for T-Gauge. For Windows? Maybe true. RailModeller .com will let you model railroad and slot car layouts on your Mac. Build your layouts by simply dragging tracks from the libraries and plug them together right on ...
