Reply to "MTH Engine Gear Ratios"

I suspect that motor torque has as much to do with performance as gear ratio.  My MTH 19th-century 2-8-0 has a gear ratio of 28:1, and slow speed performance out of the box was rather poor.  It got better after a great deal of breaking in, but this is the best it can do (under conventional control; I don't have DCS).  Not bad, but if you ask me, not that great.  And yes, its top end is way too fast.
