    Do any of you know if anyone makes Traction Tires for Deisels, Kato, Atlas ect or if there is anyway to get better traction?


    Thanks,

    Joshua, the best way to improve traction is to see if you can add weight to the loco. It has been said elsewhere here at the Gauge that traction tires can cause the loco motor to burn out before the wheels slip so they are risky. Better to see wheels slip at times.
