I have a question regarding legacy speed steps; are speeds specific to a particular model of engine, or should any engine set to say speed step 20 travel at the same rate.
The reason I ask is that the Legacy ATSF GP-7 6-28598 I own travels at a much faster rate when run on the same track with Legacy SD70ACE even though the speed steps may be set to the same number.
I believe I read on the forum that the switchers run slower, but was not sure if the GP-7s have a difference in speed compared to other models.
The GP-7 also requires at little more turning of the velocity wheel to get it started, hesitates slightly. Wondering if this is a symptom associated with the engine traveling faster than others, if indeed they should all move at the same speed if set to the same speed step.
Thanks in advance for your help.
