Re: [z_scale] Casey Jones woes
- Hello Roger,
The only thing to do is to either file some of the
material off the bottom of the cattle catcher and
then touch it up with Badger-Engine Black or
bend it up slightly which would be ugly.
It has trouble pulling the cars because it does not
have enough weight to hold traction. I would not
haul more than three of the four pullmans and would
avoid running it on grades of any kind. Some of
this Z scale stuff works best on a flat coffee table
with a limited amount of turnouts and that's about it.
