Hey, newbe to some train engines. Can anyone tell me what typ of engine this is. It is HO Life Like from China. Thanks
Carey,Until the BL-1/BL-2 EMD did not have a road switcher except for a few NW3 and NW5s( both are identical) but these was not advertised as Road Switchers but,in a way a half hearted attempt to answer Alcos RS1..The BL-2 was EMD's road switcher answer to the RS1 and RS2.Cjcrescent said:Brakie;
Wasn't it developed in response to the ALCO RS-1 or 2?
Huh!? What about the Krauss-Maffei Diesel-Hydralic's from Russia?HaggisKennedy said:I'm of the mind that the BL-2 is the ugliest locomotive that was ever invented here in the US....
Hate to disappoint you Josh. They're from Germany. As a result some people called them Kraut-Machines!jbaakko said:Huh!? What about the Krauss-Maffei Diesel-Hydralic's from Russia?
I just looked on e-bay. Wow, there are some very pricey ones out there in the e-bay stores. I just wanted to say that they couldn't give these things away in the hobby stores for $39.99. I think I got mine for $19. I would really not recommend paying the $69 that I see some of these people asking, they are NOT rare and definitely not worth that much.pappywolf said:Hey, I found a few of them on ebay. thanks all
If that is all that is broke, Precision Scale Company and Cal-scale both make detail parts out of brass and plastic. They both have several versions of the pilot (cowcatcher) available.pappywolf said:Yea, I got mine for $19.00 too. Thats not bad. Hey I bought a Riverossi Big Boy #4005, 1970 or 71. It has a broken cow catcher on it. Do they make a repair kit or some place to get spare parts ? Thanks all
