Nice to talk with you lasts nite. I took a trip to the wood shed (no I was not bad - THIS time)
to grab a MTH -8 4 wheel loco. That's the GOOD NEWS - the BAD NEWS is that the
axle to axle length is EXACTLY the same as the USA-38/F3/etc and NOT even close
to the shorter NW-2 motor block. The really B A D news is that it's LONGER 
(coupler mounting points) and TALLER since it has a mount similar to the 
KINGPIN of the NWSL motor block.

Thanks Ray,
I appreciate it. Worked some more on the Z front truck, isolated the front axle from the pickup, rear one works fine. Plan to try and hook up wipers to the rear loco truck, so will have two pickups far apart, should help on the track power pickup, if I have a dead/dirty spot. Jerry
