Question about BLW Damaged Locomotives on sale

Has anyone bought one these and successfully resurrected it ?


What kind of damage did you encounter?  How much effort was required to get it running ?


Thanks,

eja

I bought a GP15, motor is junk.  Put new motor in and it's fine.

Some have purchased DCC models, and all that is needed is adjusting the motor tabs (Atlas models notorious for this)

Like the island searched for by Capt Jack Sparrow, it can only be found by those who already know where it is.....

At least, I never found it by going through the home page.  Found it with a google search for "Brooklyn Locomotive Works damaged"

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.

I usually check out the " new at BLW " from the home page, when he updates the list it's listed there.

Bought a Life Like RS2 from the damaged BLW page. Motor is a bit loud, but broke it in after a while. Not a bad bargain.
