I have a question for those that have this set. My engine can only pull 3 cars, 4 on good day, and that's on LEVEL with 42" minimum curves. Sadly I bought 2 add-on cars: the M&M car and a Christmassy box car, and I can't use them cause the engine can't pull 5 cars even on level and straight.
If you own this set are you experiencing the same lack of pulling power.
Yes, I checked things like the traction tires (good), binding (none), and I have oiled all of the axles/wheels on the car and engine, and greased the gears. I don't know if there's anything else I can do IF those that own this set state that their engine can easily pull more cars.
As always, thanks - walt
