Re: HO ATSF 5000 Class 2-10-4
A final note by me:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Found the engine in question on the Bachmann site and it's due in 2009. No info about it's construction materials sources.
Always wanted a 5000 Class, but brass was too expensive at the times, but it would be an inspiration for me to increase my fleet of steam-era ATSF steel reefers, and watch them roll by behind this engine.
Thanks, Paul Hillman

Good exploration, Ben, but as I said, "not seen on the Bachmann website . .
." I didn't say you
couldn't find it ANYwhere on the web.
The model Ben pointed to is the old version from Bachmann, with the NYC
Bachmann recently advised a re-release with the tender from their SF
Northern (I believe).
I think they are still using the body from their Northern.
