WOW. That's really bad. How did this happen? Don't be afraid to write all the details as I and I'm sure the other guys would like to know. Jim.

well i think nothing ever works with these trains today , which is why i try to get postwar stuff but anyway when i was running it there was a bad connection and i thought that the roller wire snapped on the one side so i took the shell off and the roller and ground leads were cut. so to access it i had to take the wheel off and when i did that the wires got real tight and i couldnt put it together so i snipped the white thing around the wires and then all the wires went everywhere so i took everything apart and had a frame with nothing on it and everything else was next to it. as i put more parts on the engine the better it was but i couldnt figure out how to put the wheels back on with the insulation ring that goes around the motor because then the wheels wouldnt turn right. so i just left that part out and then it turned a whole lot better so then i connected all the wires back together and slid the 3 small circuit boards on it worked but the motors were sparking inside then the next day when i ran it the middle board started smoking and so i contacted atlas and they said to either bring ot to a athuorized service station or drectly to atlas

Hey brw_60_752...Your willingness to get inside one of these pieces is admirable however the degree of technical knowledge required to fix even what seems to be a simple problem is extensive. At this point I would send the unit back to Atlas and throw your self at their mercy. They are decent people and may allow you one strike. Don’t be surprised, however, if all the slicing and dicing you did voided the warrantee. You may be in for a hefty repair charge…Tom
