3407Re: [z_scale] Direction?
- Mar 1, 2001This is a common problem with locomotives that have been taken apart for
service or lubrication and then reassembled incorrectly. For electric and
diesel locomotives with moving trucks, simply switch the trucks. For small
steam engines, turn the motor housing 180-degrees. For other models, you
may have to flip over the motor. To determine which engines are running
correctly, and which need to be fixed, remember that the right-hand rail is
always positive, and the left-hand rail is always ground (from the point of
view of the train engineer).
More details on fixing engine direction can be found here:
