Frequently Asked Questions

Does thePower
Pick-Up Truck
work well even though the it only uses four wheels for electrical pickup?

YES. The
Power Pick-Up Truck has special mechanical and electrical design which allows
for dependable connection even on moderately dirty and slightly uneven track.

I see you offer the Power Pick-Up Truckwith
two different wheel sizes. How can I tell which wheel size to buy?

The very best way is to use a dial caliper and measure the largest diameter of
the wheel tread. If the measurement is closest to 0.414 inches then the wheel
is a scale 36" wheel.

If the diameter is closer to 0.379 inches then
the wheel is a scale 33" wheel.

You could also ask your local
hobby shop personnel which size wheels are on the freight cars that you would
like to install the Power Pick-Up Truck.

There is actually very little difference in the 33" and 36" wheels (The radius
difference is only 0.017") therefore it is likely that a 33" will fit an
original 36" freight car and vice versa.

Does thePower
Pick-Up Truck
any maintenance?

YES. For
good operation you will need to clean it's wheels about as often as you clean
your locomotive wheels. The good news is, unlike a locomotive with 8 or 12
wheels, you will only need to clean 4 wheels on the Power Pick-Up Truck. Also,
you will need to lubricate the bushings once in a while. Please see
instructions for complete details.

Can you use two Power Pick-Up Trucks on the same freight car?

YES. One
Power Pick-Up truck should provided dependable connection to the track but you
can put one power Pick-Up Truck on each end of a freight car for the ultimate in
dependable track connection. You will need to parallel the wires together. You
can use a meter to be sure you connect the proper wires together.
