0-6-0s are probably my favorites. I like smaller engines and switchers have the most play value given their working couplers on both ends.

MTH with PS3.

Missing is a K-Line PRR B-6.

Neat article Lee. Lionel's 50% flaw rate for your purchases last year certainly is not acceptable. I would be hesitant also on purchasing anymore.

Pete the SP in green is really a good looker.

Lee, wait until they're delivered and some miles are on them, then buy the Lionel one. :D I have the Lionel B6 from a couple years ago, it runs great, has very good sound and smoke, and I haven't had a lick of trouble with it.

I have a pair which are double headed to a wrecker. First is an MTH premier with ps3 and then a Williams which when I got it was severely flawed...the drive shaft [plastic] was warped which caused the loco to oscilate up and down plus ran way to fast...so what to do? I removed motor, drive line and worm gear, installed smoke unit, timing tape on axle gear and appropriate electronics...they puff smoke like working locos, sound from the first sounds like from both...I like em a lot. When parked, Williams is on dead track.

I have a couple MTH Premier 0-6-0s. One is a C&NW that will hopefully end up looking like Pete's NYC 0-6-0. I have the materials for the relettering, just have to get to it.

I also have a UP 0-6-0 from Atlas and one from K-Line in PRR garb. They are both TMCC.

I like the smaller switchers as I hope to have a close quarters industrial siding complex when I build a layout. The small engines look great, creeping between buildings...
