Heisler Drive-Line Short

John asks readers:

“I have an HO brass Heisler with a square rod and tube for the driveline. I think it was insulated at one time but I can’t figure out what to use as it must slide freely. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.”

    Hi John If it was a brass loco surely the driveshaft would have been brass also not sure why it would be insulated any way ask at your local hobby shop about square brass tube etc they could possibly help.
