Every now and then, we get a Bachmann On30 0-4-2 Porter with DCC that at least runs, but not well. So, we remove the factory DCC & other assorted electronic junk, and install a Train Control Systems (TCS) Keep Alive KA4, with a Soundtraxx Tsunami 2 Sound, system. Now, it runs so slow, you won't have the patience to wait. Bad track, dead switch points or throws, no longer matter. This locomotive just keeps on running. Don't like our load sensing variable articulated chuff sound or whistle choice? That's okay, since there's a whole library of other choices all on this sound system.
After all that work, we couldn't resist running it around the test track a few times so it probably has ten minutes or less of run time on it before we cleaned the wheels and packed it up. Not only does it look great with Bachmann 18' cars (not included), but it runs so slow without stalling, it took over 15 minutes to go around our test track once. And, it even ran well on our 15" radius inner circle of track.
