    Hi Gang,

    I mentioned I would see how many cars my new Birkshire will pull. It pulled eleven Zephre passengers cars with ease. With now ten hours on it it pulls eighteen cars with plastic wheels with no problems. I'm very happy with it and it out pulls my two Mallets by far. I'm converting all my rolling stock to metal wheels and just ordered enought to cover everything but the micro trains ones. I talked to Mark at 4-N-scale and he mentioned he has those on order for six months. Does anyone know where I could find some of those?

    I just ordered a bunch of metal low profile wheels for Microtrains cars from www.discounttrainsonline.com . He said he's got lots of them in inventory. Several others I contacted first were out of stock.
