Hi eddie,
Yes, 2 mabuchi-motors are enough to pull one person. The loco can pull me 82kg on a cart.

You know, I really feel sorry for new members who come on this thread and don't know about all of the wonderful paper models an the old thread in the archives. Shad, or someone, this would be a great thread for someone who knows how, to compile all of the old posts into a single new one so we don't lose this history.

No worries. The original multi-page, mind-blowing thread can be found here.

ituncle,
I have followed your post from the start and have passed it on to others for inspiration. Your work is outstanding to say the least. Please keep showing your work and if it's not too much trouble,may I ask you to do a step-by-step with photo's for those of us who would like to at least try your methods for ourselves? Again thank you for the post and inspiration that you provide.

Hi everyone,
How to assemble very powerfull scratch power traction. It's easy.Do not forget to put antimony weight 4kg on the loco.A weight costs 1638yen. Make two tractions. Over 8kg in all. 5inch gauge OS Rocket's weight is  9kg.The loco's weight needs over 8kg to pull a person.Wind a rubber around a wheel to prevent slip.

Hi g-gauge 45mm electric locomotive live enthusiasts,
As you know to see the pictures shown before , the place of the motor is changed from A to B according to the replacement of the moter from small one to big one. So I mount the new moter FC280SA on the wood chip. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif
