Alright Guys. The
O-6-O Shunter manages a 4% incline on a curve that has a
6 inch radius. And it'll pull one eight metal wheeled
Caboose and one modified eight metal wheeled Bulk
Carrier up and around those curves. The carriages each
have two bogies and these bogies don't turn on the
carriage frame as far as they might and as a result
stick a little on the 6 inch curve.
Modification of carriages is tricky, one false move with the
blade and there may well have to be an N Scale knackers yard
and an N Scale Emergency Ward. But it's all good and I still
reckon if it had more carriages the 0-6-0 could pull at
least two more of them up and around 4% inclines, and it
could probably manage a total of six carriages so long as
those carriages are all curve friendly.
