GE BNSF GP 60M Digitrax Zephyr DCS52

Kim sent in details and a supporting photo of his layout to share:

train layout with Digitrax Zephyr DCS52

“My current HO layout has been running going into 3rd year. I have been running GE BNSF locomotive in the inner track which has incline and curve. My incline is a bit more than 2%. I run about 6 cars and it is doing fine with that. The curve is 18″. My outer track is considerably longer but is basically oval. I run 2 locomotive consists. All BNSF. Lead is a SD70 Ace and GP 60 M. I found that if the put the GP 60 M on the inner track I had to limit the number of cars. It has only 2 axle trucks so has fewer wheels pulling the train. The inner train with the GE ES44c4 has 3 axle trucks so more wheels pulling and longer wheelbases. This is all connected track with multiple points of power supply and I operate Digitrax Zephyr DCS52.”

      Donald, simply contact the Blog Moderator using one of the “Ask a Question” links on the blog. The Blog Moderator will contact you via email asking for a layout photo and details for publication. It is done this way to stop spammers from uploading undesirable content etc.
