I vaguely recall seeing test shots from Dick, but maybe my memories are all mashed together... :-D
At least I'm pretty sure he -talked- about it.

Could these be ex-C&BT tooling ?? Didn't Dick Schweiger cut molds for one of the PRR X29 rebuilds ?

IMO $500+ has just got to be aimed at wealthy train set buyers. I read Marklin did very well in 2020 so
maybe that's what Walthers is thinking.
