My winning Powerball ticket was won by some else, so for now I dont have one...;^(.....
Was the 'pan' put down to clear the bridge?
I thought that the 'rear' was always up or did he commanded it to stay down?

Chuck,
seems to be a good puller, we hooked up 7 usa stream liners and the loco would just start to slip going over the bridge, and those cars are 13ilb each. i had a video but some how got deleted
did you go to mwlsts? didnt look that busy from the web cam how was it?

the track coming off the wye goes about 50 feet to the side of my house where I plan to build my train shed with 6-7 sidings. This way I'll have trains ready to go without having to take them in and out of my house.

Nick, aristo or MTH passenger cars?

Man, that wye is pretty short! needs a longer tail.

Regards, Greg

The video has it pulling aristo hevyweights but Bill had his USA trains streamliners there and they hook them up and it pulled them but started slipping a bit on the bridge. i had a video but it got lost some how? Like Pat replied the wye is short so it can cut back around under the bridge were it will go to a really cool lookin storage house he is getting ready to build so he can store his trains in it so it will be easy for him to play trains and not have to drag everything out of the garage.by the way for those of you that dont know, Pats a really good guy, we get together and run almost every week and he lets me bring my stuff to run every week so i can run some of it till my layout is done
