Train Tsar Fun

Real trains. Model trains. Toy trains.



Bachmann Sound Value Fail and A-Team Train

A-Team train is working fine despite be 30 years old. We will be applying the stickers and combining it with the A-Team Slot Cars.

The Bachmann Sound Value locomotive was missing parts. The store I bought it from (Bargain Hunt) said I could contact the manufacture and they would send the replacement parts or a new item. I didn’t feel like dealing with the hassle. If it had been a road name that I really like I might have done that.

Lionel O Scale Thomas Trains

Have had problems with both of my Liionel Thomas the Tank Engine sets. Have to use standard batteries and not rechargeable in the remote and one remote doesn’t work at all. Upon doing research it appears that there is a manufacturing defect with the remotes. Ththat itey tend to have a continuity problem between the batteries and the brains of the remote. I’m about to test it out in a 3rd that ┬ápicked up at Bargsin Hunt. It appears that it is a returned item and I’m guessing it was returned because it did not work. I even. I actually forgot about a 3rd one that I exchanged at Tuesday Morning. I guy at the store opened I fresh pack of batteries to test it and sure enough he pile not get it to work either!

So we will try it again!
