Thanks!! now I'm doing the railway.








I have to change speed controller and battery.
Probably I have to add another motor unit under the tender, or add weight because 2wd are not enough.
Although it is all very smooth, the locomotive moves but the tender often slips

Very impressive - you did a great job.

Are the wheels solid metal? Looked in one pic as if they had separate tires on a center?

And how is it powered - 2wd was your comment! Any pics of the motor/gears?

Those kits are famous for having underpowered motors and gearing, not surprised you have to change them.

Is there a reason you did not use metal rails with chairs and spikes for the roadbed? Would seem easy enough to purchase, but perhaps you wanted to make that as well.

In any case a beautiful model.

Yes wheels can be separate, center is in plastic with a metal ring pressed on it.




now loco ruin with 2wd, in forward is perfect, in reverse it slipper.

speed is good, at max speed is fast enough,r eally the only one problem is have more grip in reverse run.

motor unit is this





I can change motor unit position, now motorized wheels are in the back of first group and is better respect first copule in front of tender.

another motor unit is the solution for sure, but maybe some weight can solve the reverse slipper problem

Yes, there is not much gear reduction / torque multiplication. I'd definitely add the 2nd motor to reduce the strain on the drivetrain.

How much does the completed model weigh? Also I did not notice any ball bearings in any of the axles, so friction could be a factor.

Do you intend to pull cars with it, or is it more of a display model?


Again, please do not let any of these comments take away from the beautiful job you have done.
