Stuttering DMU

Looking for some help. I have a Bachmann 108 DMU that is causing some concern. It runs OK on the straight but as soon as it enters a curve (No 2 radius) it stutters.

Bachmann Class 108

Another Newbie question.

How can I get rid of the horrible gap between the DMUs? Any passengers going from one t'other would need to be an Olympic long jumper!!

DMU's

Good afternoon. I am in a bit of a quandary regarding decoders in a Bachman Class 108 DMUs. I have recently purchased the said loco and the instructions say that an 8 pin decoder should be inserted into both units and programmed with the same address. As a relative newcomer here is my dilemma; If th...
