"N" GP40-2: Some units slow down unexplainably in tight radius turns.

"N" SD-60/60M: Intermittent contact of some DCC decoders to frame pickup point causes erratic running. Solution is to add more solder to decoder pads that engage in frame.

"HO" RS-1: Narrow body shell may require some slight " file to fit" for installation of special format plug n play decoders made for these type of loco's.

"HO" GP-7 Classic: Tight internal vertical clearance allow minimum space for NMRA plugged decoders. Caution ,decoder wires may short upon compression (assembly).

We welcome comments or suggestions from readers; please write or call.
