If you ever fall over in public, pick yourself up and say “sorry it’s been a while since I inhabited a body.” And just walk away.

How many wheel pick up do you have on the box car? You could try adding some of those bronze pick ups that Micro Mark sells to try and stop power interruptions.

I don't know about N scale, but it's a crap shoot in HO trying to get after market axles to fit properly. Companies make wheel sets with all different axle lengths if we want to measure every truck and order the proper axle.
