Nah, just let it go around again and get the tender this time.This is one of the Lionel FlyerChief NYC Northerns. They look almost identical to the Gilbert versions. This one is unique in that the FlyerChief system was removed and it was converted to run on the Legacy system with Railsounds. The fan driven smoke unit is the original Lionel unit. They smoke well, the engine was moving slowly around 15 to 20 SMPH.
Note the photographer (me) instinctively centered the smoke stack rather that the entire engine in the picture. An obvious need for retraining.
