    Sounds like what Jay Leno would hire if he ever decided to move out of California.

    I am not from Missouri but a picture is worth more than words, right? Here is a very short YT video of my testing my Athearn BB. This one is from their initial run. Strange consist? Well yeah, but this is all I had available.

    This video shows her climbing a 2% grade with actually a double s curve built in. The bad part is I was running her way too fast but there as no slow down or hesitation



    Pulls well, be well,

    Running a lot better! I guess it just needed some run time on it.

    Thanks
