I'm almost finished my MDC HOn3 2-8-0 for the Caribou Lumber Company. But I've got two questions. 1) Would loggers use a coal fired engine? the MDC engine looks like it's coal fired and if it is I'll have to figure how to do a coal conversion on the MDC shay that will be my next project. Any Ideas? 2) the electical pickups off the tender, does to motor lead (red wire) attatch to the drawbar screw, or does to attach on the bottom side where there is a hole in the tender frame? As I said I's almost finished and I figure I've done pretty good sice all I had to go on was the exploded view drawing of the engine. I instaled NWSL gears into it and yeaterday I broke it in by proping it up on a couple paint jars and running the mechanism forward and revers for half-an-hour each at half throttle.
