- Apr 11, 2011Another rather zimple question from a newbie to Z Zcale:
Comparing 2 brand new locos right out of the box--Marklin F7 #88603 and
Micro-Trains Line (MTL) GP35 #981 01 520
Both have been run more than 20 minutes.
Marklin runs mush faster around a simple level oval at a lower voltage and
higher current draw (lower wattage).
Marklin:--10 seconds, 4 VDC, 44 mA (calculated 176 milliwatts)
MTL:------15 seconds, 8 VDC, 24 mA (calculated 192 milliwatts)
Do you think there is something wrong with the MTL (e.g. dry or insufficient
lube, binding somewhere in the drive train, etc.)?
TIA for your time to consider this situation,
