Here's some more pix of the Zephyr, had some requests.  Has a big Pittman motor in the loco and one in the rear of the observation car. I had disconnected the rear, but it put a big strain on the front u-joint, which came loose. Now have it hooked back up, been to cold to run it though.  Motor drives thru a u-joint to the big black gear case, out of the bottom of it is shafts to the small gearoxes on each axle.



I have fixed the center car to raise it up a bit and now have the nameplates on the side of the loco also.
