Stoker - what you say is all very good and relevant.  For an 0-4-0 compensation is surely a necessity to keep all four wheels on the track for continuity, also some considerable weight to help.  In OO there is the wheel-drop problem going through points which is lessened with compensation but still risks reducing pick-up on that side to one wheel.  This problem is lessened in P4 as there is no wheel drop and hopefully continuity throughout.  Gear ratio is another major contributor for good slow running.


I normally model in DC but did dabble with DCC but found it no better for slow running - not what I expected!
