I see a fair number of these nice looking locos for sale, in used VG condition.
I was wondering if they have a can motor or a wound motor. The little bit I can see online of the maintenance sheet seems to show a single can motor, mounted horizontally.
If this loco is all brass, do you think that having just one motor gives it enough oomph to pull 7 or 8 cars?
Also, how does it handle when it enters regular 031 curves. Do you get slight slow downs, or substantial slowdowns?
Thanks for all info and experiences.
