Lights flickering: Bachmann 2EPB Class 416


Recommended Posts

Interior lights on both cars are flickering.  Done the usual, cleaned all wheels/rails, checked all pick ups. I believe this is a common problem with this model, and it's down to the draw bar which also electrically connects the two cars. I've even tried another draw bar.

If I ran 2 wires from the terminals on the drawbar sockets (shown below in red), and electrically connect the cars with a 2 pin plug/socket would this eliminate the flickering?

This reply is a long time coming, so you might have sorted it out by now, but a wired connection between cars is quite OK if you make sure to get the wires connected properly with no short circuits.
