Thought I posted this already, going nuts in my old age!

Thinking of using a piko BR80 chassis for my boxcab electric. Few quetions i'm hoping you can help with:

1. does it pick up from all wheels?

2. Is the centre wheel sprung and non driven? Reason i'm asking is I might run it as a long wheelbase 0-4-0.

3. will it run ok without coupling rods?

Thanks guys.

1. No, only from outer two axles
2. It's not motorized, it's driven by the connecting rods.
3. So without the coupling rods, the middle axle won't run. When you remove the middle axle completely, it will run fine without the rods.

Hope this is a bit of a help.. ;)
