    Can I use a Circuitron AR-2 on a DCC layout reversing loop?

    Have you ever heard of using transmission fluid to clean your train wheels and track.

    Truly a beginner at age 73. Trying to set up first layout and overwhelmed. It's a 12'x8' in a @#' x 12' room. Scale is HO. But I. I'm determined. Gerell in DFW

    Can you suggest a mini or micro cam to record train from engineers view, something that would fit on a flatbed car preceding the engine, thanks If this question does not get answered today live, could you email the info thanks again

    I have several PFM engines that are equipped with PFM sound components and speakers. I also have a few PFM-2 sound transformers and tape decks. I love this old system because many of the sounds, whistle/bell, etc., are terrific to my ear. The engines and all the other equipment have held up great over the years. I would appreciate any comments you might offer about this system – Good/Bad, available tech help, etc. I appreciate any of your thoughts. I run the HO PFM engines right along with My O scale MTH stuff. The separate RF signals don’t seem to conflict. You guys are terrific, keep up your informative and entertaining work. Best regards, Lou

    What is the best tester for testing DCC track signal?

  8. David

    I am completing a HO DCC layout with a couple of reversing loops. I have a Digitrax AR1 to reverse the signal but I am still running into dead spots in the loop. Any ideas what may be going on? I have talked with Digitrax but none of their suggestions have fixed it.
