I just got A bli paragon PRR j1 2-10-4. The thing is a little stiff on 22 radius, it does not derail but it slows down on the curves. Now on to the question. Do you think that if I took the second set of drivers out and removed the flanges,would it hurt anything? As is, only the center driver is blind. I thought about this because my new m1b only has flanges on the first and last drivers and works great . Or, will it loosen up with some running?
