1:144 Scale Armored Locomotive

Dragon recently released a 1/144 scale model kit (number 14151) with an armored locomotive (as well as other stuff which had been released more than a dozen years ago). The loco shell was modified to fit over a Bachmann Spectrum Consolidation and the tender shell to fit over a Graham Farish 3-axle tender chassis. Since the power pick-up on the GF tender did not match the one that came with the Bachmann, it was not connected. As a result, the loco does not run as well through turnouts as it originally did.
