  1. HO Scale
    Recently snagged a D&H 4-6-6-4 Challenger off eBay for a pretty penny since I know they are relatively difficult to find nowadays (at least the Delaware & Hudson roadname). Note that this is my first steam locomotive (go big or go home) and I'd like to stay within the D&H and NYC roundhouse so...
  2. HO Scale
    Recently purchased a AHM 4-6-6-4 Challenger with the Delaware & Hudson road name. Looking to get a rough idea on how old it is and what motor it could be running. I know that these models were made in Italy by Rivarossi for AHM from the late 70s - 90s with a few changes in motors throughout the...
  3. HO Scale
    Does anybody know of anybody that is a Rivarossi Parts resource. Bowser's out of the game (as far as I know), and Ebay's Hit-and-Miss. I'm desperate for parts at this point, and the hunt isn't getting easier. Help, please?!

  6. O Scale
    Rivarossi & the Indiana Harbor Belt U4a While browsing the internet a while ago I happened upon a discussion about Rivarossi’s O-Scale 2 rail steam locomotive kits, namely their Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0 (class U4a). This is a BIG locomotive for an 0-8-0; it is beefier than most Mikados, and is...
  7. HO Scale
    I have this train set that I bought in 1996. Used it only a couple of times because of the engine (E-8 Locomotive), which was too weak for the inclines on my layout. I want to keep the body but swap out the motor and undercarriage. Does anyone know what E8 engine manufacturer will fit with the...
  8. HO Scale
    Hello everybody. Thanks to Santa Claus, my oldest son is really into HO trains. A while back, one of my friends gave us a Rivarossi 4-6-6-2 GG-1 electric locomotive he had as a kid. Looking at the paperwork that was in the box I believe it dates from the late 60's. I don't think it had the...

  11. HO Scale
    Hi folks - new here and just coming back to the hobby. Anyone know where I might acquire a tender for a Rivarossi Big Boy? Mine is mysteriously missing and I know the company went under. Anyone sell these separately for a reasonable price? I understand there used to be a Monogram kit for the...
  12. HO Scale
    TJ may have elves clean up his tinplate but I have Yardsale Pixies. Well a co worker, turned in a box from last weekend. Lo and behold a Rivarossi needing my attention. I researched HOseeker. I am not sure if it is a Pacific or Heavy Pacific. The number on the tender belongs to a...
  13. HO Scale
    Today I walked away from an S gage table and went to the HO section. The gentleman said for parts it is best to get them directly from the manufacturer. Hmmmmm I got a box of HO, to check over for a friend. His wife got it from the dump. In it was a 1973 0-8-0 AHM/ Rivarossi needing attention...
