Re: [Z_Scale] Re: AZL July 2013 New Rel ease Part 2 Mikados!
- Hi Garth,
Yes, it is almost impossible for most locos to negotiate
poor trackwork. Especially real trains, no argument there.
And it is impossible for a train to negotiate a 50 MPH
curved track area while going 100 MPH. Tragically

If you have problems with this engines pilot wheel coming off the track then look to your track work not the engine.
