Re: Blackstone C-19 pulling power?

Yes, if you put axle wipers on Backstone cars for sound cars or cars with lighting. I have found that these C-19’s can only pull 4 wiper equipped cars on the flat and level.
Sorry, I forgot those details....
Stock (unmodified) BS C-19, stock BS rolling stock and a few MTL reefers. If I have to I guess I will setup a grade test track.
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!
