OK then...anything over 4% to 6% is a heavy grade. That 2% is nothing.

How is the BLI On30 2-8-0? I kinda like it, one main thing is that the driving rod connection is to the second driver, not the third, like on most engines with more than 6 drivers. If it is good, I will purchase it, and make it look good.

Thank you, that's exactly what I though!:thumb:


Who said real locos don't have traction tires?



Prototype for everything dept.

Now you have a problem with the main rod!. What will be after this? (desperately looking for the theatrical gun)[url=javascript:emoticon(':f:',%20'images/emoticons/Frustrated.gif')]document.write('[/url]');

This is it before they added the traction tires.

I believe the remains of it went to one of the Southern RailRoad museums - I don't know if it still survives.

Here we go again...ALL the drivers are connected with siderods and there is a main rod also that connects to the piston. When you buy a real model locomotive, it works like it should. Now, more questions? Making it "look good" is something I would dearly like to see.

Well, it is not a loco but a railcar (don't see couplers), so my argument is still valid. Keep digging!.
