Worked on the Train today. The rear axle was 3" out of square from the drive axle . So I crawled under the train with my angle grinder fit with a cut off wheel and cut the spring perches loose from the frame and dragged the rear wheels around till they were square to the drive axle.
Then welded every thing back together again.
When it cools down I'll take some pictures.

This thread is a year old. The train is back with the club and has been in 3 parades since then. I think it is missing some post's and pictures. I'll see if I can dig some up and update it.
Believe it or not it is not that bad. 0-45 mph in 7 or 8 seconds. Gets a little squirrelly around 60 mph.

I just seen this thread and the video. That is awesome. I couldn't imagine the look on peoples faces in those offices when you went by with the whistle, bells and horn going ........ since I assume there aren't any rail tracks nearby. Had tears coming down my eyes from laughing so hard.

Nice job and thanks for posting.

Seems to be missing. Get a little box with a red x, and when you click on it it says the video is no longer available
