Heljan Transfer Table - Special

Here a description how I fought with my Heljan Transfer Table! I had a lot of problems with the accomplishment from Heljan. A lot of work was to do, to fix the problems.
I give an insight how to fix the problems and accordingly the solutions I found. At the end of this video you see a short video clip of my transfer table in action. For this video clip I use the movie function of my Nikon camera, so the quality ist not so good - sorry !

Thanks for the advice. I talked to Walthers and they gave me a checklist
for troubleshooting. Found one wire with broken solder connection to the
wiper in the bridge. The "C" means there is an open circuit. That did not
cure problem. Now going back in to check all connections for continuity
and hopefully another broken connection. Wish me luck, next step is send
it in to Walthers for repair that I'm sure will not be cheap. Later my
friend. Do you know what the minimum distance is between bridge stops as
I'm building engine house with Lunde Studios Quick Flats tha gives me 12
bays on each side of the table with the extension. Your video's are
wonderful and very helpful. Great Job! Eric

Author ithekid100 (2 months)
challenger. I have the transfer table but wiring it to my MRC advance
squared or to my MRC tech 2, with the bridge in the proper place and turned
the proper way, I end up with a C on the control box without any further
control. I have a list of things to check from Walthers, but would like
any info you can supply as to wiring and access to the bridge to check
continuity of the wires and current flow. If you can remember anything I
would certainly appreciate your help. Hope you still review this now and

Author vogelrobert (2 years)
Congratulations! Your vidéo will be useful to me since I plan to buy that
transfer table, with the extension pit. Could you tell me what is the
(minimum) distance between the first and last track and the side of the pit
lips? Thanks, Robert

Hey super video. Thanks for your tips. I have bought this table here. Nice
Price and Service, there are to a additional pit. Greetings from modelfreak

Author ewsdneax61eaxe10 (3 years)
i didn't know that it's a pain to install that thing. i'm planning to get
one and install it on top of extruded foam and hopefully will be easier
that way. anyway thanks for the tip.

Author challenger3999 (2 years)
@gc53dfgc you´re right! I could send in the decoder for repair. Denmark
(Heljan) is not so far away from Austria. I can´t say if the decoder or the
control box or both conked out. I rewired the bridge completly new for my
needs. For using the originally control box and decoder I had to rewired
the bridge and I won' t to do that again. I easily use a new, orginally
wired Transfer Table Bridge on my layout. The wiring of the pit is original.

@davekirwin Hi, using DCC should not be a problem. Lenz is not a bad
system. Best of luck with your transfer table!

Author galat002 (1 year)
I'm putting together a transfer table with two extensions and I wanted to
ask how you attached the aluminum H-beams to the pits? Thanks, Mark

Author gc53dfgc (2 years)
You can still send the destroyed decoder in for repairs so that you can use
it how it was originally designed to and use the jeryrigged decoder for now
till the new one comes.

Author challenger3999 (1 year)
Thank you for the tip!

@vogelrobert I'd made another transfer table video to answer your question,
look transfer table special-2.

Author challenger3999 (3 years)
@ewsdneax61eaxe10 mount the transfer table so that the mounting lip of the
pit is resting perfectly flat. That´s important, Make a cut-out in the
extruded foam and sink the transfer table in it. Be sure that bottom of the
pit shouldn´t had contact with the extruded foam.

Author challenger3999 (1 year)
Hi, I drilled holes in the pit and the H-beams. The H-beams were secured
with flat-head machine screws and hex nuts. I've countersink the holes in
the pit, insert the flat-head screws, the hex nuts secure the H-beams.

Author challenger3999 (1 year)

Thanks for the video, interesting stuff. I've just bought one and plan to
use DCC with it, I hope I don't have problems with my Lenz 100 set.
