    MTH G Big Boy #4014 smoking whistle

    I contacted Ray, who I purchased it from. There was no better part available or anything else he could do. I moved forward. It works better now than before. So what did I break? The whistle smoke tube was partially blocked. It smokes better out of the fill hole than the actual whistle. looks like you win! You're a real winner!

    The reason I even looked at the smoke tube is because it was partially blocked. Not because I was bored or wished to take my brand new BB apart for kicks. If I feel that a reply is out of order, I do not make the reply. There are many times I've held back from your posts. I can only suggest you relook at the situation. When I pay 1500 for an engine, I expect it to be right. I have learned to deal with all types of problems and people.

    MTH G Big Boy #4014 smoking whistle

    Here's a post about the Lionel Vision line Niagara. Half way down the page are more videos from the OP of the engine running on the track with the smoking whistle. Notice how much air (smoke) moves when the whistle blows. https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/topic/a-look-inside-the-new-vl-niagara?page=1 I hope there's a way to tune the whistle smoke on the MTH BB. It comes out of the fill hole when left open so much stronger than out of the actual whistle (hole). I may try to make my own tube to connect the smoke unit to the whistle.

    I did a quick spray of one side of my F40PH. It looked good so I thought I'd hurry and spray the other side before it cured fully. Big mistake. It ran, fish-eyed, and got spray all over the black when the paper towel moved, and even thru the tape?

    USA vs Accucraft vs Fine arts models vs.....

    Thank you for sharing this. Seems like it's a great puller.
  8. I really hope so. It would be great to get his attention back towards new one gauge releases. I'd be good with any new modern diesel at this point.
  9. There was the posted video from the York meet where he states that he has drawings and a prototype for a new G scale diesel engine.
  10. I hope they redesign the whistle smoke tube.
  11. Come on Mike Wolf, where's the SD70ACes???

    I took one of my cabooses apart last year to install full LEDs inside. I never got it done. Now the 3 or 4 of them I have, sit in the "to do" pile.
