Reply to "Williams 4000 Hudson (cab 5405) Does this have a smoke unit?"

I don't believe these had any kind of smoke, but there's plenty of room to add one and there are a lot of good choices today.

I would *definitely* add a flywheel if the loco doesn't have one.  Coasting is important, especially with four rubber tires and self-locking gears.

The factory motor is OK but it does draw a lot of current.  You might find a Pittman 9000-series motor to be too slow-turning by comparison.  The smaller 8x24-series has a no-load RPM closer to the factory motor and is still plenty powerful.  My $.02.
