    I have a lot of the Proto N locomotives. They run well, I have no complaints. I'm sure you'll like them.:thumb:

    yes i got them. one runs ok, not broke in yet. the other , the front truck will not stay on the track, i will put it on give it power and the back wheels of the front truck will lift off the track and then derail on curves.

    Seems like something in the drive train might be misaligned. Also could be that the front truck is not properly seated into the mechanism.

    I don't have any of these particular locos so I can't be that specific, but I have had that issue with other models from other brands.
