    • A couple videos from my layout. The first one is from a nice warm day back on January 6th. I ran a grain train.

       

       

      Second video is from today, the 20th.

      I started out with 25 cars on this train. It wouldn't budge. I figured it was because the rails have ice on them. So, I added a dash 9 to the front. Still wouldn't move. Put the dash 9 on the back. It would shove the train into the lead units and they were crawling. Hmmmmm. So, I took the dash 9 off and well over half the cars. The train would move, but slowly. That's when I noticed, the wheels on the L&N box car were not turning. It was being drug. And that car is heavy. It has two batteries in it. So, I pulled it off and swapped the trucks out for a set that was on an aml hopper. Everything ran fine after that, but I was too lazy, and cold, to bring more freight cars out. lol. So, it's a super short train. It's snowing again pretty good right now, maybe tomorrow I'll run a train again. It might be time to break out the bethgons. I haven't ran them in forever.

      It's a cool idea, and yes you have some tinkering to do. Any chance you can use a wider tire at the rear, so it spins while running around the track?

       

       

       

      I had originally bought longer screws to attach the front wheels directly to the drive wheels but found that they hung too low and would bump on curve track and over switches.  I had thought about rigging up an elastic band from the drive to the rear truck axle which I might still experiment with.   It does kind of bug me that the wheels don't spin when this buggy tears down the track.  The 4 tires and the front guide wheels are positioned just above the track so they do not catch.  The drive wheels on the block and the rear flanged train wheels are what keep the rig on the track.

    • Here is a video of a project I have been tinkering on, a High Rail truck. 

      There is still some tinkering to do but it runs pretty good.

    •  The mine, plants and factories have been shuttered and the RR has been packed up for the most part but the bosses thought it was a good idea to run one last excursion train to mark the end of 2018.

      The RS3 is setup with battery with Revo sound and control.  Enjoy.
