Re: Varney Dockside
Yeah, this one would be a good candidate for a TCS WOW with KA. It would be a tight squeeze, but has been done by others.
I am guessing that it mostly stalls on insulated frogs on turnouts and crossings. It shouldn't stall on regular track or powered frogs.
One of these days I intend to do that. I have a can motor for mine, but plan on keeping the original gearing.

I bought one on eBay because it has the valve gear, much to my surprise it had a gearbox, can motor and DCC decoder. It runs OK but tends to stall easily. Roger Aultman
