Running some live steam today
Posted by emdmike on Monday, June 14, 2021 12:57 PM

Since the weather cooled down some today.  I got out one of my live steamers I have not run in awhile(its looking for a new home and needed a new video anyways).  Other than some minor glitching from the old 27mhg RC control system, he ran well as typical for older Pearse Locomotive Works models.   Very heavily built and well optioned when compared to some new models.  While its supposed to be 1:20.3 scaled, it looks good with older LGB rolling stock.  Its an odd prototype for that scale anyways.  More fits in with the "LGB Style" in my opinion.  As was more typical back in the 1990s when this model was made.  The shift to a finer scale was just starting to take hold then.  Where as prior to that, most models where designed to look good with LGB and other brands of exhisting rolling stock.    Enjoy!
