Lionel 4-4-2 constant de-railing, help

  • Sometimes the smallest things make such a big difference, eh?

  • I still doubt it was the spring causing the problems...


    Like one of the other poster's said - sometimes the pivot is "off center" on the pilot truck, thus one set of wheels sticks out a bit more (so it looks "right"). I had a similar problem with my "new" Hudson last week - it ended up that teh pilot got twisted around funny, and the flanges on the front drivers were catching on the flanges of the pilot wheels...
