Reply to "Williams Hudson Question"

@671/681 posted:

Just wondering, why do many members dislike these locos?  Are they that fast or are slower speeds possible?  I have a Williams EP5 that does start quick and runs fast with my zw but if I run with z1000 or cw80 It starts reasonably and will run at slower speeds.  Could the Hudsons run the same way?  I see them at decent prices compared to lionel and MTH thats why I'm interested.

The gear ratio is horrible,….if you like running at whip lash speeds, then this is the locomotive for you,…for those of us that posted replies on this thread, the ability to cruise and cruise with good torque are a must…..stock, they’re not ideal for us….it depends on how you enjoy your trains,…..but for the record, no, they’re not bad at all,….just some of us enjoy different styles of how we operate ,…..I don’t dislike them for a bit,….they’re well made, and robust, it just takes a lot more modifications to make them up to our desired operating status,…if you’re a conventional runner, you’d probably love it as is,…
