SACOM 1.2.2022a.jpg

Took an old friend to the club and ran it for the first time in about 15 years. This PFM C & O 2-8-4 is my first brass loco. It was 1981 and I was a young Sergeant in the Army stationed in W. Germany, at the time, that $250. was a hard nut to crack, but I've never been sorry.

I think the rods should have been blackened or darkened. I have a few of the Proto Heritage models of this engine that I hope to weather down the road.
