Hello everyone, it starts again with T Gauge!
I want to spend any cars to my MALLARD and my Flying Scotsman. It should be cars of the Orient Express. I use my last 103 train as base. But the drives I convert to which with worms. Between the wheels are gears with 20 teeth. The intermediate gear has 26 teeth. This results in a reduction of 20:1.

But the speed of the cars does not yet fit properly to the locomotive.

Beautiful and excellent craftsmanship, as always! :D

I appreciate the close coupling, very realistic.

Thanks for the compliment, Jesse!
The close coupling is, however only suitable for generous, equally realistic curve radii.
I will get even better motors, I will change them for those who are in it now, then fit the drives of the cars exactly to that in the Flying Scotsman and in the MALLARD.
