Nice little engines. I held off getting one for a few years since it seemed like too much $$ for such a little loco. But when I saw one in the Lehigh Valley pre-war color scheme, I changed my mind. It’s one sweet loco with great sounds.

Yep, that great looking LV would make anyone change their mind.

Nice engines. We have a Virginian.

But how do get it to cross some turnouts like a #8 Ross? I saw something about using another car with contacts wired to it.

Or do we need to add wires to the Ross turnout?

Would like to get another, weather it, and use as a yard engine... if it will work.

I think the MTH 44 tonner is in its 4th release over a pretty short time, I guess it is a pretty popular diesel.

I would definitely go for a couple Arcade and Attica locos. The new scheme is attractive but I also like the older paint scheme they used in the 70’s and 80’s...

I grew up 20 miles from Arcade and only rode the train a couple times....

Back in the fifties, every afternoon I would see what I thought was a 44 tonner pulling out a string of new boxcars or reefers from Pacific Car & Foundry ( now known as PACCAR ) in Renton, Washington. The little guy would have around 10 new cars in tow and would deposit them on a Great Northern siding.
