Ground throws will be a problem unless they are place a good distance from the rails.  We had to set our throws several inches away just for the K28/27.
The problem that is of most concern is the additional width of the engine relative to running with other equiipment; will there be problems?
I do not think that most portable layouts will have 8 to 9 inch centers for clearance of passing engines.

A better design of the lube tube system would help to extend the oil availability over a given run time.  The present design allows for extreme "suck out" of oil but a regulator setup so one could meter the oil usage and requirements throughout a run would be better.  As to cost, given the investment one puts forth of "large green bucks" for the cost  of a few more bucks that would improve the system and prevent problems most would accept.  To achieve "uncompromised reliability" would be better accomplished with a better lubicator- metered.

Would be a worthy campaign but I fear......" However all this is kind of after market add on stuff and the more extras that get added the more expensive the model becomes."

As to aftermarket; out there and available.
