Reply to "Taming the Williams Hudson"

Very nice pete.   Ever wonder why Williams had all the weird 44:1,  42/1, 9:1 gearbox ratios. I do have some Williams with sane gearboxes but they seem to be in the minority. Their PRR B6 had a 21:1 which is just right for a mainline locomotive but a bit high for a switcher.  Lucky their 42:1 gearbox has the same gear on the drive axle and will swap with the 21:1 so I took the 21:1 from the B6 and put it in my N&W J and put the 42:1 from the J in the  B6. Both are happier for it.            j
