  The NWSL powering kit (#210-6 for H0n30) for the Keystone Shay is an excellent driving mechanism. But the the kingpin assembly was not feasible for me, it is really difficult to weld the kingpin without destroying the small part. I found for me an alternative way for the kingpin assembly. I use a M1.4 screw to fix the kingpin to the gearbox. But you need a lathe, otherwise I can not imagine how to drill the hole through the kingpin.

Jeff Law sent me following note about drilling the kingpin over H0n30 mailing list (see the HOn30 Mail Car mailing list home page: http://www.hon30.org):

I was intrigued with your innovative solution to the kingpin assembly on the NWSL truck. I've been having difficulty with these myself on a Shay I'm building. You'll be interested to know that, having no lathe, I tried chucking the kingpin in my Dremel, using sandpaper at low-speed to true up the kingpin end, and then using a 1.2mm drill in a pin-vise to drill the hole for the 1.4mm screw whilst still running the Dremel at low-speed. This worked a treat -- thanks for the idea that pointed me in that direction!
