22 cars with a Marklin Mikado is pretty impressive. Especially with 3 of the
cars being FR hoppers. My Mikados will only pull 10 or 11 FR Hoppers and a
caboose, or maybe 15 MTL cars. When you say "after market" motor, do you mean a
new Marklin Motor, or a totally different motor. Could you elaborate more on
"regeared between wheels and motor", and "rebalanced boiler"? Thanks.
