bachman 4-6-0 problemsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread
I have a bachman spect. ten wheeler and I installed a dixitrax decoder in it with no problem. when i gave it a ttrial run , I discovered that the loco and tender does not pick up power as it should. I have checked and doublechecked any possibilitys of poor connections. I can lift the loco off the track and it will have power from time to time and the same thing happens if i lift the tender. what is the deal here thanks stacey smith.

Try going to your hobby shop and buying a bottle of ConductaLube. Put a few drops on where the power pickups rub the wheels. This stuff generally works wonders.
