First Dead Rail Operation on C&S

C&S Forney #6 leaves the yard at Corinna under battery power for the first time.

I chose #6 as my first dead rail conversion because I knew I was going to have to tear it down to work on it. Or so I thought. On DCC, it ran rough, as if something was binding in the gear train. I went ahead and removed the DCC/sound board, along with the rest of the Bachmann electronics, put the DelTang gear in, and fired it up. I was amazed — the loco now runs perfectly smoothly, as you can see from the video.
