Of course, we are likely all aware of what happened when the ERIE got that large class of Russian Decapods.
The gauge problem, narrowing the engines from 5’ gauge to American Standard, a mere 3½” difference, was done by applying new tires with a wide tread, moving the flanges inwards 1¾” on each side. Worked real slick . . . until they encountered a self-guarding frog. Resulted in a very rough ride, as the tread had to rise up over that hump . . .
The ERIE Decapods hauled lots of FREIGHT CARS. 😊
