Re: Older Pacific Electric model

That is right Mike. They are opposite each other. The other truck is the same way.

Older Pacific Electric model

Question for someone. I am restoring a older (early 1960-70's) built Pacific Electric motor model that is in one inch scale. The unit has 4 motors on each axle. The motors have four wires coming from them. The original person wired it with a red, a black, and a green to each truck. I am assuming tha...

Re: Green velvet oil

When my father got knee replacements, I looked all over them to find the Zerk fittings. Seems like if we can send a man to the moon, we could come up with a human safe grease to inject into noisy knees....

Re: Train Mountain Track Building update

At LALS the 7 1/2 track is steel rail, and we reverse direction every 6 months so the rail wear , and i presume, the wheel wear is even. As to ties, we use plastic. Some of the wood ties on the 1 inch layout are over 60 years old.

Re: Green velvet oil

The problem with Brennen Oil is you can only get it in 5 gallon size. Nothing smaller. I am almost tempted to ask them to be a West Coast Distributor, and package them in 1 gallon size....

Re: Dimension Engineering controller question

It wouldn't have been the first MU cable that was bad order :D I've been looking at the manual, and it looks to me like all I'll have to do, after I change the DIP switches, is reverse the polarity to my pot and reverse switch. I can do that easy, by switching the two wires between the controller an...

Re: Dimension Engineering controller question

Bob, was not running, just hooking up my throttle. Must have been a short somewhere. I use a DIN connector on the back of the locomotive.

Re: Dimension Engineering controller question

It was a SyRen 25. The main chip went poof quite spectacularly. I was following a diagram that another member of the club did. His did not blow. If I stay with DE, it will be the SyRen 50 next time. I may also go with 4QD

I am interested in the $12.00 controller Mike. Who makes it?
