Review of O Gauge Train Maintenance You Can Do It Part 2 DVD

Hobby stores have closed all over the country, and it is difficult to find someone to repair trains. Our concept is to show you how to make repairs yourself. Bob Phillips has been repairing prewar, postwar, and modern era trains for over 40 years. Bob's simple and direct approach makes him easy to follow and understand.

Here are some of what you will learn in You Can Do It, Part 2. How to repair Lionel e-units, the diesel horn, steam whistle, (both prewar and postwar), smoke units, how to solder, improve prewar and postwar accessory operation, install a flashing light that has eliminated the caboose. Get ideas from visiting a small economical postwar tubular track layout with plenty of action. Bob also goes over how to lube an F3. Plus, Bob gives you a list of tools you will need to make various repairs.

And remember, you can do it.
