Not that this thread will be a "How to re-build a steam locomotive" thread; but, I will from time to time update my progress. As of late I have mounted the new gear, re-quartered the driver set that I needed to put NWSL's new gear on and mounted the new motor. My confidence in NWSL's products is so high that I will go ahead and put the LED head and back-up lights in and install my Digitrax Decoder in the loco, before ever having run the locomotive with the new motor. Using the pliable rubber material NWSL sent with the re-motor kit and then attaching the motor with the Permatex sealant NWSL recommended, was an easy job and went very well! Photos to follow.
Opinions given are my own and not meant to ruffle any feathers.
Northern Pacific, really terrific!
