  1. After fiddling with it for about an hour. I was able to remove a gob of hair (nasty ) and realized that one of the axles was stuck and was able to free it. not that I have done this it sometimes moves slowly with a clicking noise and then will stop I am assuming something is rubbing up against the axle or gears to cause friction but I'm not sure. -RailCo
  2. Hello, I am reaching out to all 12v train users. I recently purchased and received a 12v train (the 7725). Unfortunately the motor is dead, I put it on the track after building the whole model and setting all the track up to find it not moving. At first I thought maybe if it hadn't run in awhile it would need a little help. That didn't work so I tried it by just connecting a wire to the motor itself and gently moved the wheels. The motor started to produce a light smoke so I immediately shut the power off and haven't tried anything since. I did see some life though at one point, it did move about 1/16 of a turn at best and I could hear it trying to move. If the seller is cooperative hopefully I can work something out with him. If not I was hoping many people on this forum could lead me in the right direction. Here is what I know about the motor: It looks to have been opened before. It is the version with the separate bogie pin. From what I can see there is some hair spun around the axles. I am wondering if I need to completely give up on the motor or if there is a way to fix or replace just the motor inside. I am really lost and would love any help that someone could give me. I looked for awhile but I haven't found a post about someone having the same problem as me. Even if someone has a broken lego casing for the motor but there electrics still work I could be interested in that as well. Thanks, -RailCo
  3. Ah, okay thank you. -RailCo
  4. Thank you all for the help with the traction tires and my question about the wheel spacing I was curious if anyone could explain this: He has the wheels right up against each other in his MOC. Thanks -RailCo
  5. Hello all, I have a quick question about the BBB medium wheels. I noticed many people have made MOCs with them and have been able to make the non-flanged wheel and the flanged wheels (i.e. an 0-6-0) be right next to each other. I am not sure how people did this because my non flanged wheel is the same depth as the flanged wheels. Also, I was wondering how people put traction tires on these wheels. Thanks! -RailCo
  6. dang I missed this... maybe another time. -RailCo

  9. Hello All, I am looking for 12v trains that are 100% complete along with track and transformers to start my 12v collection. I am in the U.S. so I have had a hard time finding any 12v trains for a decent price. Please comment here or PM me with information if you are willing to sell any Thanks, -Cameron Muir
  10. Hello! I have noticed recently that I can't buy any Lego from any other amazon site than my home country. I am curious why this is? Also since I cannot buy Lego internationally anymore from amazon, does anyone know of other shops from the UK or Europe that ship to the U.S. internationally they can recommend. All suggestions appreciated -RailCo
  11. Hello everyone! I am looking for Modulex bricks any kind and color to start my collection. If you have any you are will to sell PM me or if you knowwhere I can get some also let me know (I have checked bricklink and eBay). Note: Preferably the bricks would have their original box if possible. -RailCo
  12. AWESOME! Please keep us updated when you get all of your train products out there! Amazing! -RailCo
  13. @Lowa I noticed in your ncontrol software there is a "Light" or signal in your layout. Are you planning on making a signal that we can use for 9V that would stop our trains when the light is red and let them go when the light is green? Great Work overall! -RailCo
  14. Thanks @M_slug357, @jrathfon, and @dr_spock for all the input. I actually really like the train till I say the way they incorporated the motorization, that's what has been putting me off. -RailCo
  15. Well I'm glad you didn't outright take my idea because that happens often enough haha. Also sorry for the Lego Ideas link I abandoned that months ago because it never got any support but I never expected it to anyway. Thanks! -RailCo
