Pete - I appreciated your thread on assembly. The reverser was giving me fits to no end.

When the train derailed and broke the site glass - shards and steam blowing galore - I was done. Only temporarily though.

After posting this thread, I took everything and stuffed it away for the remainder of the weekend.

I pulled it out this AM and, of course, had the rig running - forward even - within 30 minutes.

All good, looking forward to building a track now. Then building my own rolling stock as I hate plastic.

Lesson: Sometimes you just have to walk away for a while.

Make it a great day, Ruger.

However, the Regner Heisler is a different beast. Mine runs beautifully without any special build problems. The only issue we found was setting the reversing valve properly. Did you use the UK-English instructions from Graham at Or did you work with the german?

The thread on MLS has most of the queries/problems and the solutions. Your YT video shows you need to adjust the reverser as we did!
I posted a similar thread on LSC.
