Steamer Performance

Starr, David <david.starr@...>

To see if a can motor upgrade would improve my Mantua Pacific, I made the
following measurements "before"

Top Speed 118 scale mph at 12 V and 0.6A
Slowest speed 1.7 scale mph at 3 V and 0.3A
Current draw 0.7A wheels slipping

and after installing Mantua can motor upgrade kit #812 with motor MC-94

Top Speed 126 scale mph at 12V and 0.1A
Slowest Speed 0.304 scale mph at 1 volt and 0.1A
Current Draw 0.2A wheels slipping

The slow speed crawl with a can motor is outstanding.
