Yep it hardly makes sense sometimes, one time that loco will pull 14 cars for a half hour then today it would do two laps and stall out.
Good flame no wind, only thing I can think of is the bottom outside of the boiler is getting dirty.
Dang thing, ya could let it sit for 15 seconds and it would fly again, right on the edge of not enough.  Laughing
