      The dummy is basically a body sitting on a flatcar chassis. If it
      doesn't roll, look for some binding in one or both trucks.

      I took a different tack to solving that problem. I bought a GN F7A
      powered unit and a F7B dummy. I took the F7B shell and put in on
      the chassis for my SP F7A that I got with the original layout. I now
      have a powered F7AB set that looks great.

      Problem is, I have the train, but sold the layout... :-(
