Minitrix 9F
« on: May 22, 2011, 09:51:00 pm »
I have access to a Minitrix 9F which is a beautiful runner and being sold at a great price, I notice all wheels are flanged so I am trying to find out what minimum radius this loco will handle?, any help would be much appreciated.
Keep on Smiling
Dave.

I have one and it goes around the 9" but isn't very happy about it. It's better on 2nd radius setrack or greater.

I have two Minitrix 9f's and neither have any problem going round Fleischmann radius 1 curves which only have a 7.5" radius!

All my Minitrix 9F's go round peco 1st radius with no problems at all, unlike my Dapol version which also would not pull the skin off a rice pudding.

I don't think you will regret buying it - the old Minitrix locos seem to run forever. I think my minitrix stuff will be around long after I have shuffled off......

Just make sure the traction tyres are in good order as it will pull nothing without any or if they are shot.

They are easy enough to replace though  :thumbsup:
