It's an MTH premier, from the late 90's. At $225 I figured it was a pretty good deal.Impressive, what is the brand and age?
Steam will grow on you, soon you'll be selling diesels.Received my CB & Q Hudson that was recently purchased off a STOUT Auction. I'm happy. It's heavy, well made, shows no wear on rollers or wheels. I paid $485 plus $35.80 shipping on an item I have to believe was what? $1400 new. Appears to be a shelf queen. Once the track is down and electrified, it won't be.
I now have steam in 2 of my 3 road names, and I don't like steam overall. The only reason is my age, I never saw steam new. I have done some excursions behind steam. I would love to get more steam, perhaps a Milwaukee Road non-Hiawatha, which is my other steam locomotive purchased by my wife for Christmas.
