Interesting as traction tyred wheels dont normally collect electrical current. Or are you taking about what they can pull? You've given me an idea!

I try to swap out traction tyred wheels for solid tread wheels for better pickup and gain tractive force by adding weight.

what i think happens is the loco sits back true on the track if you have some solid wheels then you will get the best result but i would be not too good at a wheel swoop just passing on something i found out more by good luck
