But maybe my freight cars are not as
free rolling as Earl's must be...


The my cars seem to be VERY free rolling. My main yard is perfectly level
according to all 3 of my the carpenter levels - but the darn things roll
down toward the switch ladder anyway. It's a real nusance. I could fix
this by planting some long grass in the yard, but most yards are pretty free
of weeds. I'm thinking about putting some brakes on these cars by wrapping
a resistor around the axles to add some friction and get block detection at
the same time.
