Flanges and no connecting rods.  :facepalm: But if someone wants to make a small 2-2-0 it's perfect!

David,

Welcome back.

I noticed your T- gauge blog is gone.
It was a good reference.  Sorry it is gone.

Dave, you back? I haven't seen you in in forever.

Sort of. Once in a while.

Fun... but, oh, those flanges. :|

Actually, it's the photo that makes the flanges look huge. The thing rolls on Code 40 track.

Flanges and no connecting rods.  :facepalm: But if someone wants to make a small 2-2-0 it's perfect!

Again, a macro photo gives it away. The thing is so tiny the missing rods aren't that noticeable.

I noticed your T- gauge blog is gone.

All of my blogs and sites are gone. I bid the Interwebs farewell.

Good to see your presence here again DKS (even if it is just a sporadic post).

But it is sad to see your new attitude towards the Internet. I hope that you have backups of all that very useful info in case you might change your mind in the future. If not then we have a great source of modeling info gone forever.  Not cool. You know, even Atlas left their inactive forum online for reference.....

I've seen it, but haven't bitten yet. Here is the whole locomotive:

I wonder how it runs.

Probably runs like this:

hey guys so the chassis that's in the video I had one of them the problem with them is they have those little pager motors and I'm so they're useful voltages like up to only like 3 or 6 volts and her top speed is ridiculous. One axle drives the mechanism the other ones a dummy and then on top of everything else the two units are isolated from each other if um um together with wire and run a decoder they can be pretty decent but the top speed is still ridiculous. The gearing basically consists of a worm directly onto the axle gear. Depending on what your expectations are of the chassis they aren't bad they're smooth but like I said they're super quick. excuse spelling errors and weird words dictated with voice to text
