Hi all, I've been working on a 2-8-0 locomotive with Big Ben Bricks' small drivers and Zephyr's connecting rods. It is tender driven, meaning there is very little weight in the loco itself, and as a result the driving wheels stutter every so often. I have reduced the friction as much as I can but there is still a noticeable loss of traction. The loco is just too light. I've looked at official lego weights and they're far too big to fit in the build. Are there any non-lego alternatives that I could hide somewhere in a hollow section of the body? Any suggestions or help will be appreciated. Thanks! An image for reference. Taken before the connecting rods arrived:
Hhmarshall posted a topic in LEGO Train TechI would really like to add coupling and connecting rods to my Toy Story train. I've never done this before, though and am unsure what pieces I need. How long should the coupling rods be? How do I build and connect the connecting rods? I am hoping to avoid a ton of modding but am willing to do some. I would love to see this in action like a proper steam engine (I already motorized it). Is there a tutorial for this somewhere about adding rods in general? If not, I would appreciate any help I could get. Thanks!
