MOC: 2-10-4 Texas Style Monkey Motion WIP
Posted 13 August 2009 - 04:37 AM
This steam engine is a WIP, using two Medium PF motors, the IR Sensor, and two switches (one to reverse the 2nd motor, the other as an extension chord from the PF IR Receiver to the PF Rechargeable Battery in the tender)
The PF features power the BBB Large Drivers. If anyone has thoughts on improving the traction of the BBB Large Drivers to put more power down I'd love to hear ideas.
The engine runs pretty well with the tender. It is also able to pull a couple of longer coaches (but that is about is).

Try adding rubber bands around the wheels like the Emerald Night has. This will improve the traction between the wheels and the track to give you more pulling power.
My set reviews: 410 Payloader, 6517 Water Jet, 6854 Alien Fossilizer
