We may have messed up but it is a learning process. This weekend we will get it back and going right and hopefully a little better than before. To bad that slide valve has so much slack in the linkage. Probably why it gets dead spots. The real locos had them too I guess though, and on engines like Americans it could be a real issue. We need a little starting electric motor in the tender!
