Despite rumors that I "never" run trains (spread by Jason Kovac LOL) I had the K-27 out last night for some testing of various mods & tune-ups. I've done a lot of work to the suspension (to get the drivers to contact the track better). To test this I loaded all the AMS cars I had available at the time (18) and tested the pulling power. I experienced 0 driver slippage, although the track was dry, so I still wont know about the oiled track you come across at meets... Also we had valve timing and teflon piston rings installed by Tiple R Services.
Anyway, here is the video:

Thanks for the video. That is very nice indeed. Over on the Rolling Stock and Public Forums, the sparkies are having a VERY lively discussion on the merits or demerits of the Auch Mon K-27. It is a riot to hear them yip and yap about gear ratios, voltages etc. Nice when all we have to do is oil around, take on water, check the fire, open the throttle and go. LOVE LIVE STEAM!! BTW Jason WHO??? (triple LOL) Just kidding Jay.
Which movie? David's or Rod's ? Did your machines recover?
