As Bob Barker used to say "come on down!" The Garratt needed some "attention" a while back and I just got her back to shape. #4 has 2 instrument motors that came from an old word processor (lektric typewriter) I had and are identical so she runs great. The little Docksides ran well as stock, but jumped to start and ran like scalded apes, the slow motors did the trick. The engines are "hinged" to the superstructure just like the real thing, I don't believe it would operate as well if I hadn't done it the prototype way. I am glad #4 is back in service, she's a sweetie.      Woodie
