Prairie tank coupling rods
« on: June 17, 2018, 06:08:07 PM »
Evening,

I’m about to start rebuilding my live steam prairie tank and the coupling rods are bent and also Don’t look great.

I’m sure I’ve heard someone has replacement ones made, does anybody know of where I can get some?

Also the centre axle is powered by a steam motor but there is a lot of slop in the rods on the two outer axles ( rod holes are to big for the pins) would this make a difference to the running of the loco or should I not worry?

Simon.
