grandsons 1st train

every thing was so exciting for him to get all set up and he started the train for the 1st time his eyes were on fire

Great locomotive

Just getting back into the hobby after 30 years and I am very impressed how nice these new locomotives run. Very smooth and quiet

cute house. scale seems nice

But mostly I like Squeaky's Trains for great pricing! Thanks Squeaky's!

Just what the doctor ordered

Work, looks as described. Just what I was looking for and needed.

DCC ESU Decoder Tester

Very pleased with my purchase have not had a chance to use it yet. Looking forward to fine tuning and setting up ESU decoders.

Kato curved unitrack

Was very happy that it came right away and was well packaged. It was also priced lower than the other shops and will definitely order again!

Kadee 634 centering spring

They will do the job is why I got them for wheel pickup power

great service

Very well packaged and received timely. Will use for sure again.

Hands On

I ordered two batteries separatly by accident. Thought about about calling to combine them but i never got around to it. Squeaky's combined them anyway, probably saving me shipping cost. Also, after 2 battery fires (batteries not from Squeakys) I now exclusively use MTO battery packs which are somewhat hard to find. Squeaky's tries to keep the MTO batteries in stock and they are knowledgable about them which makes them my exclusive source!

It's installed

Didn't do my homework very well. Was looking for a Loksound 5 with keep alive to use with my prewired Nix decoder buddy in UP 1804 switcher. Removed the decoder buddy and installed this ESU 58921. Wired in the rotary beacon and ditch lights front and back. Everything works great! My only minor gritch is the horn which is pretty anemic. I've ordered the Lokprogrammer so I can change this. No worries. Thanks.

Service is EXCEPTIONAL!!!

Everything always arrives before I expect it!!! Packaging is always great!!! My daughter loves the little treats in every order, by far my favorite online store!!!!!

Awesome Speaker

If you've got room for it in your locomotive, this speaker blows the previous generation out of the water! The bass on this speaker is awesome, and it's really brought my locomotive to life! I highly recommend it.

Typical KATO quality

Woodland vacuum

It sucks!

Very convenient, especially for locomotives

To keep the pads fairly clean, I put a paper towel over the top of part of the cleaner and use Goo be gone on the paper towel. That puts most of the dirt on the paper towel. On a brass steam engine, the tender has to be on the metal rail and least some of the drive Wheels on the locomotive have to also be on the metal rail, so the wheels have to be cleaned in a couple of passes. For cars, I use the paper towels on a section of spare track rather than getting the pads on the device dirty.

Coupler height

It is simple to use, mine is mounted on a piece of test track at eye level when I’m sitting . Not just height of coupler but does it couple and release. I use a strong magnet , run it under to uncouple
