Lets see more oldest locos in the fleet

While I am not 100% certain, I believe this United/PFM consolidation is the oldest locomotive model I own.

Show me another steam locomotive with eight drivers.

Holy Deja-Vu Batman!

Here it is again, the United/PFM consolidation! It is not only my oldest locomotive, made in the 1960s, but it is also my most recent purchase.

Actually, I bought two other locomotives since this one, but they arrived destroyed.

Show me another recent purchase.
