Re: Blackstone C-19 pulling power?


I used Bullfrog Snot on the rear drivers. Thinned it out as for "N" gauge use. Before the '"Snot" a Blackstone C-19 wouldn't even pull itself up a 4% grade. I lowered it to 3% and all works as expected. A C-19 takes four LaBelle passenger cars up with ease. Then again do you want to really pull everything with one locomotive?  Think helpers as that is how it was done before the "Mudhens" arrived. After that it was all history as they say. Paul.
