Laidoffsick: All I can say is Wow! Impressive. :thumbsup:
Thanks! I like the grphics design too. There actually was a prototype, though it was a 4-bay hopper. MTH also did this car as a 3-bay hopper too. They are out there, it just took me a while to purchase one.Keith, I like that a lot. I have been looking for a red/white/blue,car for a while and I enjoy the nice clean looks of this one. Putting it on my want list. Enjoy yours. Tucgary
So I've noticed! My N&W J has hardly any signs of wear after about 3 or 4 seasons of running, but the Lionel Polar Express berkshire I put on the layout for one season already shows signs of flange and pickup roller wear. I like my Lionel stuff, but I think Williams wins in this type of functionality :laugh:It should give you long service, most of the Williams stuff is practically bulletproof!
Nice purchase. I like the look of that. Enjoy!Just purchased my third Williams locomotive off of another forum. My Williams N&W J class has been my main runner for my Redford Theatre layout and after 4 years has hardly shown any signs of wear. I figured it couldn't hurt to have another berkshire around for some running. Should be here this week. I'm also interested in this one since it's the only williams locomotive that I have the postwar Lionel counterpart to compare to.
