How exactly does that torque AMPLIFIER work?

Hi Zody.... its a geared adaptor that adds turns to your wrench...for example...if you turn your wrench one complete turn, the multiplier will turn the socket 5 times. there are some god video on you tube that can explain it a little more in detail...

I just donated to the Save the 800 campaign. Should the campaign fail, I would like my donation re-directed to ATSF FP45 #92 please. Please tell the person who handles the online donations about my wish. Thanks!

Per Wikipedia: Torque multipliers typically employ an epicyclic gear train having one or more stages. Each stage of gearing multiplies the torque applied. In epicyclic gear systems, torque is applied to the input gear or ‘sun’ gear. A number of planet gears are arranged around and engaged with this sun gear, and therefore rotate. The outside casing of the multiplier is also engaged with the planet gear teeth, but is prevented from rotating by means of a reaction arm, causing the planet gears to orbit around the sun gear. The planet gears are held in a ‘planet carrier' which also holds the output drive shaft. As the planet gears orbit around the sun gear, the carrier and the output shaft rotate together. Without the reaction arm to prevent rotation of the outer casing, the output shaft cannot apply torque.

Can someone tell me what happened with the Milwaukee Road 33C. I used to watch the E units pull trains through Byron when I was in grade school
