A query for Ed King : If, as Ed says, rigid wheelbase is not a factor in
ability of a steam locomotive to negotiate track curvature, then why is it
when Baldwin Locomotive Works produced Decapod 2-10-0 class
locomotives, they left the third, or middle drive wheel flat all the way
without a flange? Bill Sellers
