Re: Blackstone C-19 pulling power?

Mike Chamberlain

Hi Ric ! Would it be possible to do a short how to on adding the cab roof weight ? I assume some sheet led would work , but I haven't tried that yet . I use mine on a 4% grade and have to double head to pull any reasonable size train .....Thanks ! .....Mike

Nate I can’t really answer your question as I have not enough information. The pulling ratio is directly effected by the type and weight of the cars! I have ten of them with added weight on the cab roofs! All of mine will pull ten BS cars up the 2% grade, I have pulled as many as 15 on a flat. 
Stock would not pull that great!
I have modified fifteen to look more like the EBT #7.
Still not perfect but looks good to me! 
Keep up the railroading!
