      Pulling Power of USAT 0-6-0 Docksider

      This is a 4 year old video. I only had 18 freight cars at the time, and this 11 pound behemoth pulled them all like they weren't there! It will pull a lot more.

      I'm not surprised, Joe, that the docksider pulled so well.  I had a USAT Big Boy and it would pull stumps.   Dennis Sirrene (sp?) has pulled 200 cars with his.

      Due to the docksider weight I would think that it is the best small engine for pulling power.

      It certainly is in my book. I have since acquired more freight cars and passenger cars, and it has never failed to pull whatever number of cars I couple up.
