A closer look at my notes reveals :
3101: yellow marks on 31201, 601, 801
same arrangement on 3102's coaches.

So I guess the jury is still out, although there seems to be more evidence in favour of not putting the yellow marks on the Allegra powered units.

I may need to put them on to troubleshoot the apparent lack of pulling power some of the LGB Allegras have. Maybe one motorblock is fighting against the other/dragging? We'll see...

Ah, further checks reveal that some driver coaches do have the marks, but either the wheels are dirty and you can't see them or they've been turned and the yellow marks have been ground off.

I recently found a picture of the freshly painted (125th) Ge4/4ii, and it clearly had the yellow marks. All the bolts on the trucks were shiny too so I'm guessing it had just been overhauled.
I'll just have to flip a coin! :grin:

Still not sure what the answer is here...some seem to be painted and some not...what's the consensus for doing the Allegra powered segment wheels guys? :grin:
