Re: Brass Steam Locomotives that Pull Freight Cars.

Certainly not brass in detail but old Rivarossi (ahm) can haul impressive amounts.  My Y6b 2-8-8-2hauled all my 54 cars round and round a layout involving 3'radius curves and grades of up to 8%the train was nearly always on two corners so the rear car was running at 180 degrees to the locomotives direction. Only some of the locos sold under the Ahm brand were by Rivarossi.
