Question about Bachmann James The Red Engine Train Set

Bachmann HO train set not working

I have a new Bachmann train set that I joined with an existing one. I added to turnout switches. The track reads a short across rails with the pack unplugged and no cars on the track. If I unplug any section of track the thing works just fine. I can't find anything shorted across the tracks anywhere!! Does anyone have any ideas?

I realized that you can't use two left hand turnouts because they end up making a short when the come full circle!

This is a follow up to your request for more information regarding a drive belt for my Geetech CT-345 12" Planer.

surfing the net reveals that the planer was made by geetech& chiu and was named to any retailer (GMC,Bosch Talon Masters anybody who would place an order for quantity), and that wanted one. ( go on line for geetech&chiu and read all the stories). What this means that the drive belt you are after will be a generic belt and will probably be available fro reputable machinery repairers, retailers, gearing/bearing shops. What you will need is the belt as a sample so that it can be matched.If you do not have the belt any more then run a piece of string around the pulleys and get a measurement. get a width measurement as well and see if it is toothed or multiple v's
