Tune up my Engines..
« on: June 19, 2008, 06:38:56 PM »
Who's got some good information and/or links with tips on tuning N scale engines?

I'm taking many out of storage, and they're not running as well as I'd like. It's been a while since I did any real tuning up  ;)

The first thing to do would be to disassemble the trucks, and clean out any congealed lubricant.  Give the wheels a bath in some rubbing alcohol.  Re-lube with a dot of light oil, clean all the electrical wipers, and you should be back in business.
