Mine can pull 8 or so cars with no problem.  This without (awful) traction tires.  Mind you, all my rolling stock has metal wheels so they roll much better than the stock plastic wheels.

Which is what they were designed to pull.

What lacks pulling power?  Spectrum Standard, or Proto 2000 steam?  The 2-8-4s sure do.  But I'm happy with my 0-8-0s.

Stay away from the early releases of the Proto 0-8-0. These do not have the tender pickups and stall easily at turnouts.

Just what everyone needs a switcher that has to stay out of the yards as there are too many turnouts there. Looks good though.

I have the P2K 0-8-0 without tender pick ups and it works just fine.  Guess that's the advantage of handlaid trackage and live frogs.  None of your plastic frogs to loose pick up when the loco goes over them.  Smiley
