Does anyone know of any testing that has been done to determine the
optimum number of driving wheels for a given weight?
If not, this might be a good time to start something. If you are
interested, measure the pull power (maximum number of cars, their
total weight, track grade etc) and weight of your various locos along
with number of wheels and post the results. Maybe we can get some
data to add to Ralph's observation.
