Train Roll on
I have posted this on the another forum and was told I may have more luck posing it here. So here goes....

Can anyone tell me how to tone down the noise that the O/27 scale Fast Track puts off? I have screwed the track down to the shelf that it is on but it is still loud. I ran the engine 4-4-2 around the track last night by itself and it was fine. When I pushed the cars around the track they were the ones making the most noise. The wheels seem to be plastic. Is there anything I can put on them to quiet them down?
