EJ- thx-I think Leo B drove one of those.  I will go through the archives though as I do believe I've got some good pics in Socony colors.

Were these old models all chain drive?      Were chain drives all single axles? If there were tandem axle chain drives, did the same chain drive both axles?

An fksw is not a chain drive. On tandem chain drives of the time they were either powered by one chain, a separate chain going to from front to rear axle, two separate jackshafts and chains, or a dead axle with no power to it.

Does anyone have a photo of the shaft drive/bogie assembly in one of these early tandems?
