Took a slightly used k-27.  I plan on running it on at least 6ft minimum radius track.  Counter weights appears to be tight.  I know earlier Bachmann locos like the connie had trouble with gears.  I think the k-27 has metal just geared a bit to fast.

Anything other than good periodic lubrication to kerp it running.

Hi Chastity,

Talked to my son yesterday, his K 27 continues to run  just fine, no issues with the gears.  He does lube regularly.
