Yes I guess that's true, if you keep your hands off of them they will
run ok however only if you run on totally flat track and do not have
other units that run slightly faster running with them. As I have said
in the past this noise occurs when you have a faster unit connected to
it, a heavy train pushing the unit down grade, or slowing to stop a
I tested it at the club again and now I am a believer.
I see said the blind modeler as he ran his Stewart and saw.
The noise I heard was a softer varaiation f the grinding you are
I also tested them alone the 1st time.
Now I see and I agree, it is unacceptable.
<<<Most of the time I mix power on trains. I run my PRR Kato
SD40's/SD45's with these units and this noise occurs. But really when
you get right down to it, it is a defect in the locomotive, a defect
that as I have mentioned in the past, was corrected by Stewart. I will
not have units that I cannot freely mix into trains. I also do not
subscribe to the practice of using dummy units, but that is my choice
and I am most likely in the minority. Many messages have been posted
about this practice and if it works for others that's great, but it's
not for me. I am a locomotive guy and own many more locomotives than I
So the point is that the units can be improved. I offer the info only as
a way to correct a defect without much difficulty. The Stewart six axle
units are a great product and I am very pleased with mine after these
now how does one get them fixed? What did you do?
