I wasn't sure which forum to put this under. Please move it if needed.
I was using the search feature to find if anybody had put their own reversing valve gear that worked onto a steamer. I'm not a master of the search so I didn't find anybody that did but I did find a lot of interest in having this feature. I also found stories of 3rd Rail engines doing it. I couldn't find any Youtube videos of 3rd Rail engines doing it, unfortunately.
So I have to ask two questions:
1) Has anybody hot rodded their own working reversing valve gear onto a locomotive?
2) Can anybody find a good video of one in action on an O Scale engine?
I have a growing interest in modifying locomotives and rolling stock to improve them. I'm not really at that stage of building a layout yet but I enjoy reading up on project in my spare time.
