Helix humpers
« on: October 12, 2009, 01:36:05 AM »
I repowered a Mantua Pacific years ago....I can't really remember but it was over a decade ago cause I was in school!...any way,I had real good results out of the repower.Are they still of the same quality today?Thinking of buying a few more Mantua/Tyco locos(0-4-0s to loggers) and repowering the small fleet I have bought over the years at shows for next to nothing(they run like crap but they look ok and pull like a mule!).

As of 5 years ago, they were the same, if not a touch better quality. I put one in a Bowser M1, and it vastly improved how it ran.
