Friends,
I just bought a new MRC Power G transformer. I have used the MRC Control Master 20 in the past, but wanted a little more consitent power for a longer track extention outside. Pack runs LGB 21192 Mogul very well, sound works fine, however, the headlight flashes as it runs. Is something wrong? When I run this loco with the MRC 20, no headlights flash. Running a Bachmann Annie on the MRC Power G gets no flashing lights. There does seem to be a slight burning smell from the new transformer, but that could be from the newness of it. It does not get hot to the touch. Any ideas? Suggestions?

Michael,
It is pretty consistent at all speeds. It almost looks like the ditch lights on a diesel (but I am running Rio Grande narrow gauge steam). I have ran several locos and this seems to be the only one doing this at the moment. At first, I sure thought it was a power pack problem, now I'm not sure.
