    Do you mean for adhesion? Makes sense, but contradicts what was written a year or so ago when a new loco was being speculated about:
    http://rerps.co.uk/new-steam-engine/
    "•2-6-2 wheel arrangement as eight coupled locos don’t have much benefit on the R&ER but they involve more maintenance work"
    I hope that is true, because now you have got a new six coupled loco!

    For adhesion and putting power down. I disagree with a lot of what was in that article to a large extent. The rest is political which I don't do. My interest is in getting Esk going , no more.
