i hope im in the right topic area,i bought a Bachmann class 66,bachmann number 32-975,i bought it as a non runner,but hoping to get it going again,i have done the the 9volt battery test and sure enough,nothing,it is dc,all and I mean all wires are connected ,and none are broken,should I just send it away to get repaired or what gear would I need to test it properly?

Assuming it is DCC ready, try 9v applied directly to the motor terminals to check that bit is working. Then use a multimeter to check continuity from pickups to pub to motor to pinpoint where the failing is. And try a different blanking plate in the Dcc socket as they can fail.

If you have connected the battery direct to the motor as Steve stated and its dead there lies the problem, motor will need stripping and repairing.

Freudian slip I suspect- probably meant PCB, but let’s wait for enlightenment. R-

You guessed it right - it should have been PCB.

I could blame ‘autocorrect’ but that excuse is copyrighted on the Hornby Forum (the regulars on there will know what I mean :D )

So with that excuse gone I will just have to offer incompetence. So glad that didn’t autocorrect. :lol:
