It's been one of those days. You know, the ones that happen when your trying to show your trains and their operation. I know a few weeks ago, someone posted a problem with their 10340 shuttle unit. Well, today one of my shuttle units started to act up. It's behaving like there is a short somewhere. I checked the track wiring, and the wiring to the unit from the power pack. I could not find any problems. When I turn the power on to the track, the loco moves an inch then stops. It may do this one or two more times, then nothing, until I cut the power for a short time, then power up again. Then it does the same thing. As it was getting too dark to do any more investigating, I 'll get back to it tomorrow. I plan on disconnecting the wiring to the track and try looking for a short on the track with a continuity tester. The funny thing is the shuttle worked perfectly when I re did some of it's track work last week.
