Good evening all.

I am a novice G scale fan and a long time lurker on this forum.

I have a Aristo Craft 0-4-0 starter set that had been in storage for a couple of years. (long story)
I have the Basic Train Engineer ART-5480.

I change the battery and set up the train to circle the Christmas tree and the strangest thing is happening.
The train comes up to speed but will gradually slow as if the slow button has been depressed.
it takes about 2 minutes for the train to come to a complete stop.

This happens in both forward and reverse.

I brought the train up to speed and disconnected the battery from the remote but it still is happening.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Well you guys were right. It's the receiver. For some reason it cannot remember the speed setting. I guess I will be chacking e-bay and see what I can find.

Thanks for the responses.

Have a great weekend.

Bill
