The 2-10-2 shown above or below has been stripped and the parts carefully stowed. At the moment the chances of getting another reasonably priced 2-10-2 is slim. It'll be another 6 months I think until I can get one. However while I was pondering things I started measuring my steam locomotives drivers with digital calipers. I found something interesting, the drivers of a Minitrix 2-10-0 decapod are only .2mm out. So I will make 2 2-10-10-2's, one with Bachmann drivers etc (the correct way) and one with Minitrix drivers. The Mintrix 2-10-0s are widely available and fairly cheap. Luckily Minitrix also made a British 9F version with the same mechanism so I have a wide choice. Yes I have to grind down the drivers but that's a small consideration. It also gives me some practice with the mechanism. I don't want to stuff up the Bachmann and if I make a mistake with the Minitrix mechanism I know I can get another one fairly quickly. time will tell if I succeed or not.
