Now out of all of my recent acquisitions from the 2012 Myrtle Beach model train show this one is perhaps my favorite of all!!
I am now the proud owner of a Mantua 2-8-2 Camelback! And it is also my FIST camelback locomotive I've ever had the privilege of owning. She runs VERY well, but could really use some good breaking in. Hopefully I can manage that once I've relocated.
And there will be a lot of visual changes also, namely the replacement of that HIDIOUS excuse for a box headlamp...
I also plan on shaving off the molded on single phase air compressors and replacing them with brass PSC parts. And I'm debating on whether to keep the same locomotive number or not.
Anyway, comment if you fave.
