Signature: WTD ........... Nurse, the screens.

Bio: Had a model railway for about 54 years. Like anything I really like. Heavy freight my favourite. Get a bit fed up with people who use the Forum to moan and whinge. There are far worse things in life than getting uptight about the late delivery of a loco.

Ramsey is wrong. Service sheet HSS 347 shows it is loco drive.

When I sell a loco the purchaser gets it at a reduced price and post and package free. So there is such a thing.Wink

When I had a similar thing happen, to a different loco, I smeared some glue on the wheel and pushed the tyre (flange) back on. 

 

It is called a tyre and is exactly the same as they have on the real thing. They are heated so they expand then fitted to the wheel then they shrink fit.

There is no need for that, an 0-6-0 should cross ordinary points without a problem, mine do very slowly in sidings. Double heading would not be very common with just a few wagons.

I realised you meant in the USA but it’s still mighty heavy for even a lot of the heritage railways.  Then of course you have to transport it. Surprised

Or the SA one at the Bucks Railway Centre. Not sure the NRM would have it unless it was made in the UK.

How can you modify a huge loco so that it can run on the main line if it is too heavy and tall? There are places in this country where preserved locos are not allowed to run. Undecided
