Baykal,

Just a thought, have you checked the back to back clearances on the wheels?

My only steam tender loco (an old Rivarossi Royal Scot) has it's motor in the tender and a drive shaft to the loco wheels - it seems to work fine as it is quite heavy.

Regards

John

Love to help, but I don't think my fleet would be much use Fleischmann Warships, Lima 33's, all HO of course. (Mind you the 33's are a bit gutless, but they pull enough for my needs.)

Regards

Sounds like a challenge to me - I'll have to "profi" them and add decoders first however. Could be a bit of fun though.

Regards
