Several things can happen, most often it is because the wheels or the top of the track is dirty and they don’t make good contact in certain places and in other places they do. Clean them both good. If its in the motor then the contacts inside the motor are dirty, they can be cleaned but you have to know what you are doing and be careful to get it all back right. Sounds like track and wheels though.

How can I get my dog to calm down indoors..? Please, any help?

Question by Vixen*: How can I get my dog to calm down indoors..? Please, any help?
My puppy is a 5 month old Alaskan Malamute. He is such a wonderful dog when he is outdoors! He loves to be outside, he doesn’t stay out there, he is allowed to come in whenever he wants, but he loves the cool fall weather and prefers to be outside. But I don’t allow him outside when it gets dark out, I don’t feel comfortable. Anyway, he is so hyper and disobedient inside. He gets plenty of exercise, I talk him for 30-40 minute walks in the morning and play in the yard for a while, he runs around outside during the afternoon and he gets walked again for 60-80 minuets before we bring him in for the night.

Now, the problem. When inside with us, he howls at us for no apparent reason, and he also digs and at tries to chew our couch pillows. He also does to us; he digs at our sides with his paws and howls. I’m not sure why he does this or want he wants. I am not sure how to go about “training” him to calm down inside. I have dealt with Malamutes before, and never had this problem. He is fabulous outside and on walks, but not inside with us.

I’ve tried the ignoring him and turning away until he behaves and then rewarding him, but he doesn’t ever calm, even for a second! He jumps on me when I turn away, and like I said earlier he digs at me. I have also actually tried a water squirter, but he loves the water and howls more because he wants me to spray him!

Please, if anyone can help I’m not sure what to do. He gets all sorts of toys, but isn’t really interested for long, and gets all the exercise he needs.

Thanks in advance and for reading this!

A malamute is one of the most dedicated working breeds… These dogs live to run and sleep in the snow! He is not being met with enough of a challenge for his “job”. (life) This dog needs hours of (strenuous) exercise (always keeping in mind that you build him up slowly). Howling is a way to keep in touch with the pack, and neutering wouldn’t be a bad idea as it may calm his more wild desires to roam.

I have a model railroad and the train speeds up and slows down at different points. Why does this happen?

I am trying to find out why this happens and how can I fix it.

Answer by Scott W
clean the rails they are dirty and not making good contact so the train lacks the power it needs from the track and slows down,take some ulta fine steel wool and clean those spots or the whole track.

How do I anchor track down for model railroad–N-Guage-when nails won’t hold?

Question by Michael M: How do I anchor track down for model railroad–N-Guage-when nails won’t hold?
I am building a layout on a hollow core door and I am concerned that the luan is not allowing the tiny nail to bite. Becasue I am using flex track, the cork railbed is not sufficient.

Answer by mariner31
I’ve used latex medium to glue down N-scale Flex track !! I use pins and weights to help hold it down… but on luann or light plywood, it’s PERFECT to adhere it to the roadbed.

I’ve also seen folks do it with thin beads of latex caulk.. but I think that would work best with HO track.

GOOD LUCK

This setup had plenty of fun details that I didn’t capture, mainly because of the crowds around it. Garden scale really allows for some fun
