This detailed, weatherproof model features a factory-installed multi-train control system decoder for use on DC or DCC systems. Customers who bought this product also commonly purchased the following combination of items. I can't help with the trucks at the beginning of the thread, but there was mention of the trucks used on the early Central Pacific locomotives. Those photos clearly show the external details which seem to be quite consistent throughout the range of application of this class of truck.

DOT recently unveiled an 18-to-20-month-long initiative called Transform CT to gauge the public’s desire for transportation improvements and then build a plan based on what the stakeholders want. The backlog includes replacing and upgrading the overhead catenary lines, upgrading the antiquated mechanical signal system and addressing the aging railroad bridges, some of which are more than 100 years old. Once such improvements are made, Redeker said, commuter train trips should speed up and any routine repairs and maintenance become less disruptive of service. Connecticut may benefit financially from its decision in the 1970s to retain ownership of the New Haven Line.
But he stresses that whatever extra money Amtrak provides, Connecticut won’t come close to the figure needed to cover the upgrades. A federal advisory commission, which Redeker oversees, is examining the financial responsibility of state and federal governments, as well as freight operators and other groups.


An encapsulated gear drive combined with a powerful Buhler motor drives four axles, and the loco has two traction tires, plus twelve electrical pickups to provide smooth, steady power. A ball and socket guides the front truck with the weight carried by a cross equalizer and links. A recent 12-day disruption along Metro-North Railroad’s New Haven Line caused a $62 million drop in the gross state product, a measurement of economic output. He contends faster speeds on the New Jersey Transit commuter rail line gave an economic boost to northern New Jersey.
Toni Harp recently proposed an hourlong ride from New Haven to New York as part of her economic development plan in a bid for mayor of New Haven. The agency also is designing a new signal system and plans to address the immovable bridges.
The New Haven Line has five, including the steel truss bridge over the Mianus River in Greenwich. A new federal rule could require Amtrak, which pays the state an access fee to use the line, to pay a share of the line’s infrastructure costs. Altogether, the backlog of work along the Northeast Corridor represents a cost of about $52 billion. The articulated drive system lets you use the engine on sharp radius curves as small as R1. It caught my eye the last time I saw 999 (the first time I had seen it since it moved inside, where one can get up close and personal).
Therefore, it would seem that the three point suspension scheme came first, and was then discarded in favor of having both trucks sprung directly between the frame and journals, before the direct springing finally fell from favor.Yes I understand what you are saying about the chronology.


Redeker brought in outside experts to come up with a plan to build a replacement train bridge alongside the aging Atlantic Street Bridge in Stamford. Constructed in 1904, the bridge is operated by crews who make sure it closes perfectly after opening for marine traffic. Digital, electronic sound features include bell, whistle, brakes, air pump and feed water pump, as well as exhaust synchronized with the motion of the wheels. It's been a couple years, and I'm not sure I totally understand what the original design intent was, or if I can explain it correctly, but the coupler head is pinned to a link on each side that are pinned into a pair of side-by-side pockets on the tender beam. I have a Live Steam Railroad Supply Corporation design CP-173, but neither it nor the Disney design tender trucks are prototypical. The trucks on the Governor Stanford are somewhat similar and some of the casting numbers (journal box and cover?) are the same as #151, but the Stanford uses wooden truck bolsters. Built-in volume control can be adjusted for indoor or outdoor operations, and sound functions can also be remote controlled (with the multi-train control system). Other features include a built-in smoke generator, reversing headlights, positionable cab vents and firebox door complete with flickering light inside. The locomotive has a four-position selector switch for the mode of operation and a voltage limiting system, plus a general-purpose electrical socket with a safety feature. It appears to allow lateral motion to match the motion of the drawbar on a long car without the need for a long shank.
