People have also put Kadees "inside" that u-shaped bridge.


The short wires are indeed a pain in the butt.


with the nice electronics, you can easily eliminate one set of pickups, and the reduction in rolling friction is dramatic.


My buddy and I both bought the 10 car set (I run 12 cars) and stringlining has been an issue with the rolling friction.



Camarillo Pacific makes the Kadee mount.


We are going to change the carbon brush pickups to ball bearing pickups.


They are great looking cars, except for the threaded bolt visible in the center of the observation car
