Harold,

I have a few questions about how she runs. I'm pretty critical of ultra slow speeds and watching the valve gear as it moves slow. How does she go?

I am happy with the 2-6-0's running ability, but the wheel flanges are egg shaped on mine. So while watching it run slow the whole effect is ruined bu those flanges.

It won't take much for me to order one, but I would really hate to be disappointed. This would be absolutely sweet pulling a combine and a coach  :D

Thanks
Chris

The 4-4-0 does everything well. Difficult to do a webpage if there is very little to talk about.
