Lional Challengers pulling power

The pulling power of my Lional challenger was very poor to say the
least. The rmedy is quite simple
1 remove leaf springs from the front truck
2 replace the spring on the rear truck with a much lighter one
£ remove all five springs from the fixed axles on the tender( you can
if so desired put very much lighter springs on the 1st and 5th axles
as they do pick up).
Before re assembling the keeper plate use very small amount of silcon
grease on the five rigid axles, the difference is a good running loco
tha will now pull a decent length train up a 1.7% grade.
Merry christmas to all Paul Doggett
