They are .5945" apart. Evenly spaced.

Who's sayin im bashing anything?  :D
Im still working on the mechanism for the big Hudson. Wolf's measurement has hopefully confirmed what i was hoping for. With a .5945" spacing, the fvm drivers will be spaced closely. Also, the siderods will work for a big hudson, but not the blue goose.
My pa-1 truck attempt would work but the siderods were going to a pain in the a$$. Id like a reliable mechanism so I've returned to the drawing board. This might be the way to go.

Now who has a model power 2-6-0 mogul, preferably the non dcc/sound version they'd line to sell? A parts engine would be perfect!
