Streamliner Update: The Drawband
I tackled the only problem that my Streamliner had today - a broken drawband. The open mechanicals of the carriage made this fix pretty easy. I did a bit of online research and found a misconception that I want to correct. Two sites mentioned connecting the band to the spring itself. One site recommended tieing the new band to part of the broken band to avoid this difficult procedure. I found this to be unnecessary. By winding the spring, I created a gap that allowed me to feed the new drawband into the drum and tie it off. Problem solved, my Streamliner types great.
