THIS CLASSIC ENGINE WAS IN NEED OF A TOTAL RESTORATION. IT DIDN’T RUN, NEEDED WHEELS, HAD NO RODS OR LINKAGE AT ALL. MOST OF THE TRIMS WERE THERE BUT NEEDED A SUPER CLEANING. THE FRONT AND REAR TRUCKS WERE GOOD. ALL FOUR DRIVE WHEELS WERE REPLACED. ALL THE SIDE RODS AND LINKAGES WERE ADDED NEW. NEW BELL WAS ADDED. I INSTALLED A NEW FRONT PILOT. THE ORIGINAL WAS BENT AND CRACKED. THE FRAME AND BOILER FRONT WAS PAINTED. THE REST OF THE BOILER, CAB AND ROOF WERE POWDER COATED. THE MOTOR WAS CLEANED AND E-UNIT AS WELL. A LOT OF WORK WENT INTO THIS ONE BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. SHE RUNS BOTH FORWARD AND BACKWARD AS DESIGNED. THE TENDER IS A 265T WHICH COMES WITH THESE ENGINES FROM THE FACTORY. THE TRUCKS, WHEELS AND JOURNALS WERE REPLACED FROM STOCK. A NEW DRAW BAR WAS ADDED. THE TRIMS ARE ORIGINAL. THE TOP OF TENDER HAS ONE HOLD DOWN TAB MISSING. REMEMBER WITH THEIR AGE THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THIS ENGINE WILL RUN LIKE NEW. I TEST ON 027 TRACK AND THE PIECE CYCLED FINE. OTHER TRACK MAY AFFECT PERFORMANCE. HOPE YOU LIKE THEM.
