1  Discussion Boards / HO / pulling grades with helpers on: August 01, 2007, 03:18:30 PM
Hi
My layout has a 4% grade with 18" radius curves (yes I know the comments will come that such steep grades and sharp curves are a cardinal sin). However, my spectrum shay, regeared MDC climax and diesels pull  short trains up the curved grade just fine.
I would like to get some rod steam engines and am considering purchasing Spectrum's 4-6-0 (low boiler) and 4-4-0.  I know these engines will not have a chance at pulling a short train (~2-4 cars) up a 4% grade by themselves.  Do they have a chance if they are consisted in DCC and used together to pull up a short train or will the dirvers slip anyway?
Thanks

Everytime I search the message board, I only get messages from Feb 2007 to present.  I can never get anything to return that is older than Feb 2007, no matter what or how general my search is.  I note that the software changed.  Waht gives
