    Athearn Genesis MP15AC light board removal

    Maybe I was talking about the wrong thing? I'm talking about the small chip attached to the DCC Quick Plug socket. I ended up using pliers and lightly grabing the chip, wiggled it out.

    Athearn Genesis MP15AC light board removal

    I recently purchased an Athearn Genesis MP15AC and right now I'm trying to install a decoder. Only problem I've run to, is that the light board doesn't want to move. Is there some special way I'm suppose to remove it? Usually they come off pretty easy. Thank you.

    Athearn GP38-2 and GP40X Reviews Needed

    Athearn GP38-2 and GP40X Reviews Needed

    Haven't posted in a while, and I looking to change that, but I need some help. I'm looking for reviews on Athearn's GP38-2 and GP40X as I'm looking to buy one of each soon in CP colors. How noisy are they? Do they pull well? Stuff like that. Thanks :D

    Anyone Own A Tower 55 Loco?

    For anyone thats interested and/or have ordered a CP ES44AC from T55. I emailed Brian Marsh at T55 and they have moved the ETA for the CP ES44AC's to Fall 2007. Also the price has been increased to $350 from $300. This new ETA kinda pisses me off, I really really really want my CP ES44AC...

    I am in need of the handrail set included with a HO Kato CP AC4400CW, part number 952115. Kato is sold out and I can't seem to find it anywhere on the net. So if you have an extra set or you know where I can get one it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks:)

    Adding Ditch Lights

    I'm planning to add ditch lights to my P2K SD60's and I have someone thats going to do it for me, but I need to know where I can find the housing for them. What I can tell from pictures is that the ditchlights are above the pilot and not below. Thanks in Advance! :D
