Recs for an HO steam loco

573 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  J.Albert1949
It's been ages since I enjoyed train models as a hobby, and with a new granddaughter starting to appreciate the hobby I'm getting back into it. I've got O, N and HO lines going but would like to add an HO steam locomotive with tender to my collection. Please recommend a steam locomotive with smoke, DCC and sound are not requirements. But I'd like enough power to pull half a dozen cars. Hoping to stay under $300 (under $200 would be better!). Thanks.

With 18" curves, something "small-to-medium-sized" is what's going to run without problems.

You can get dcc and sound, but smoke?
Probably not so much.
