Got one these from MB Klein this afternoon.

From the diagram has the can motor like the 4-6-0.

My guesstimate is a 15mm diameter speaker facing downward in the tender.

Full Soundtraxx Economi with all the sounds.

Runs and sounds really great, am impressed.

Dug out an old analog 2-8-0 and that one wouldn't pull that train because of wheel slipping.

There is no working front coupler.

The usual answer to the front coupler is the MicroTrains Z-scale 905.

It worked but the front coupler is usually used for switching, the problem is the car being switched would "bobblehead" or "slinky".

With a little bit of fitting the McHenry coupler will work in the 905 coupler box.





Not for everyone, but works for me.

Remember when this was N-Scale steam:



Boy, has N-Scale come a long way.

That was a truly awful loco.

Yep, N Scale engines (and rolling stock) have come a long way, a very long way and are now very competitive with HO scale in all respects.
