I was just over on the red shirt site and a gentalman was talking about their open house and having tug of wars. He said it got over too fast.

then my mind got to going on building a tractor pull type sled with a weight than moves up with pullys and creats more drag on the rail . their would be a flag sticking out to show the start/stop of each run. So it does not matter how long your locos are or if they use a battery car.
I plan to build.
But I was wondering if any one would do it. ?
I may limit it, if the BB can't be stopped.
It would be interesting just seeing which company stock locos can pull how far.

I can remember my RC car days that for a short while there was a RC track pulling association that travelled about teh area. i thought it was silly but lots of folks got into it. Heck Aristocraft even made a pulling sled! Maybe you could get one of them and retrofit it with flanged wheels Marty?

we'll see what happens . I don't think any will pull the guts out of their locos. its like starting up with a heavy frieght then hitting a steep grade. same principle.
