AJ-looking great! On the 9" radius...with some work, you should be able to get her around. I am running 10" radius on my Gila Tram exhibition layout and although #4 hunkers around them, she stays on track. You will need to work on the drive train to the trucks, the universals will need to be reworked. I used NWSL universal parts and made up the "dog bone" shafts using wire & their ball joints. You will also need to wire the trucks' pickups with some fine flex wire...the stock pickup system is crap anyway. Also, you might need to slightly modify the sliding box shafts also. But you will get there. Good luck.

Woodie
