Question about Toys
Se a volt meter and with the transformer turned on and a loco or a car that draws lighting power on the tran=ck use the volt meter turned to a low voltage and test the connectors as their shoulnot be any reading across the connector ( no reading) from one side of the connector to the other if their is disconnect the track and reconnect it wirebrushing the pins or electrical cleaner. the wheels of the loco can benifit from this treatment too and there's wires coming from the trucks to the motor and switch ( reversing relay) This wire can be frayed and partly broken and may need to be replaced. The centerr rail wheel sometimes looses it's tension in the spring that makes it ride on the track and this also can stand a good cleaning and it's wire can alson by old and near broken.. thjey get stiff over time and the wire does'nt let the thrid wheel ride on the track all the time with the right pressure interrupting the flow of current. Many on these LoCo's have a switch in the cab that lets the loco only go forward. this switch can also get dirty and can benifet from a blast and cleaning with electricl cleaner.
