Re: *VIDEO*: Last Runs of the R32 - ALL R32s now held Out of Service

The difference between the steels and the R-1/9s was that the R-1/9s had the standard configuration of 1 motor truck per car with 2 motors and 1 trailer truck whereas the steels had maximum traction trucks with 2 motor trucks, 1 motor per truck to spread the weight. Maximum traction trucks of that type generally don't provide the same amount of pulling power due to less weight per truck. That was the problem that plagued the Qs after they were transferred to the 3 Av el since maximum traction trucks donít work well with trailers in the consists.
