I got one of the Gen 2-8-2's out of an early run, and a fellow club member
got one, also, and each one pulled 50+ coal hoppers. We double headed them
at
the GATS at Nashville last year with DCC and pulled 100+ cars! If you need
to
unload yours, send it this way! The tender makes for a plausable unit for
the
L&N, that ruled our neighborhood.
Running on a code 100 flat module is not the same as running on code 70 with
a 2% grade in a 27 degree curve.
You need more experience.
