Yeah, Max. Just come back to us.

(this is when you say "but I never left!" and unveil your Q2)

LOL!   Maybe one day, sir, but not right away.
I do like the PRR, and I always will.  They had beautiful, distinctive equipment, and great regions
of the country that make for wonderful scenery building.

The Bachmann 2-10-2, ... watch out there.  That thing only has 53" drivers, not the bigger
62" that the I1 has.  That's about 50 thousandths.  It will look funny.   Splicing the Mikado
is a small project in itself, but not all that bad.

Sorry Cody..... 75.00.  The tenders come loaded to allow the casting to be a thicker cross section at the angled end of the coal bunker ( I could not cast it empty).  Of course the coal load could be cut out.

Hmm. I'll have to check what assets aren't in use and can be liquidated.
My other monies is tied up in getting just one 2-8-0 chassis as of yet, so it looks like i'll have to pass on your super-amazing shells

If you come up with a frame for a 2-10-2 using Kato parts, I'm on that for several.

There is a mechanism?

Well, if Jason wants to cast the shell for the Kato, so be it. But I was thinking of the Trix, with all the usual upgrades applied, like the K4.

A proper sized boiler and parts in the right place on top the Trix mech will get you in the game cheaper than brass. And yes, those are motorman goodies. ;)
