In my assorted fleet I have examples of loco drive, cardan shaft drive and straight tender drive. In my opinion the worst of the lot as it frequently results in the loco crabbibg due to its being pushed.

pure magic,

This is the system I have on my old Riv Royal Scot, and although a bit of an oddity on the scale front it is still among my favourites in the HO fleet.

As I recall the original Hornby ringfields were sourced from Fleischmann, it was only the later "copies" that caused the problems.
