Thanks, guys.

T-Man ... truthfully, I pretty much forgot about this one, too!

As usual, nice job TJ. The 262 looks similar to a 259 but with more "Panache". Jealous (again, as usual).

Many thanks, SoShores!

My little collection has grown nicely ... mostly by my adopting rusted, dented, forgotten orphans! Admittedly, this one wasn't too bad to begin with ... he'll add a touch of class, perhaps, to the rest of my disheveled band of cohorts!

She's now sporting White Flags and a Coal Load, courtesy of parts through Jeff Kane. All buffed up, ready for a new lease on life!

Thats a beautiful looking engine the armature is super clean and its windings look pristine.
If you do not have one already you may want to look for its bigger counter part the 260E with chugger !
I recall the Mrs saying what is that noise ?

Many thanks, Dieseler!

It's funny you mentioned a 260. I've been eyeing junker ones on ebay (few and far between), but have it on my "someday" list. I've got the tiny-loco segment pretty well covered (with my 1501, 1506, 1681, etc. locos), but am only getting in to the BIG loco segment relatively recently. Here with my 262, and also a 238 that's in the to-be-repainted queue. They are beasts ... but oh so shiny and pretty!

Cheers,

TJ

Nice, didn't know you had one of those.

I snagged one in similar shape, straight 262, no reverse, but, with an inncorrect 260 12 wheel tender...….Which, I don't mind at all actually......

Here it is, running right as I received it, with, just a few drops of oil....

Long lost cousins! Nice looking tinplate on your end, BWA. Enjoy.

And keep paying proper homage to the Gravity Gods. They need to be appeased when one lives that close to The Dreaded Edge!
