Hi Ozrail,

You are doing a great job on your locomotive.

If it is the same wheel spacing as my model it should track the curves? However, I have not tried my 4-6-2 on any turnouts yet.

Building a working steam locomotive in TGauge is very challenging, but keep working at it and you will succeed!

Joe.

Yes, the Wheels are spaced to work with the Flying Scotsman rods.

The Wheels are not handling curves for several reasons, and magnet in the switches are effecting the drive wheels.
Not to mention each other, I might need to de-magnet the middle one.

Yes I know Steam engines are a challenge, but I have made several attempts.
Although to be fair, none of my previous models had working driving wheels at the time.
Anyway, maybe I should just leave future steam loco sales to you.

I de-magnetized the rear two wheels on mine as they are right under the motor, and seemed to slow her down.

I also had several failures, and lost many nights of sleep trying to get mine to run right!

I think it will be a huge boost to TGauge when TGauge.com releases their locomotive for sale. Then people can just make different chassis to fit.

Joe.

Not sure how easily a body swap will be, as I've seen a prototype for their steam loco. (They were kind enough to send me a photo.)
But one can hope.
