Jeff, overall how would you compare your Athearns to your Atlas', Kato's, LL's and BLI's?

JaRRell

LL - Great pulling power, excellent tracking, very smooth running and Ok looks.  Negative is no sound and weights must be cut down to make room for sound.

Kato - Good pulling power, good tracking, smooth running and great looks.  Negative is lots and lots of little parts (unless you like them) to pull it all together and no sound.

Atlas - Good pulling power, good tracking, smooth running, great sound and very good looks.  The only negative is that the 6 axel diesels are the most sensitive to any track imperfections. The trucks seem tighter.

BLI - Good pulling power, good tracking, smooth running, great sound and good looks.  Almost as good looking as Kato and Atlas but not quite.

Athearn - Good pulling power, very good trracking, semi-smooth running, good looks and best prices.  Negative is no sound and noisiest units in the fleet.     

I'd rate Athearn's as the best value, if you aren't looking for sound.  You can't beat the P2Ks for smoothness and power. As far as overall satisfaction I'd give BLI a slight edge over Atlas but it depends upon your criteria and what is most important to you.  For me it is how does it run out of the box, does it have sound available and how does it look.  I am waiting for the next run of Atlas Dash 8s due in November.  I am also looking forward to the Precision Craft Models SW1500s due in January.

To me it means,

quiet, reliable, least derailments, slow starts without a 'hiccup', never balky, good slow speed even to a crawl, responds to commands quickly and surely.

Sigh [sigh] that all mine would do this.

You guys are nuts- or is it me?

I have twice as much as I need, need to get rid of at least half.  A third of this was from cherry picking my Dad's collection that I sold off.  The Heisler and train set stuff were all gifts from the Chairman of the Board.

HO- RTR

  • Bowser K-4 Pacific (super detailed)
  • Spectrum K-4
  • Bowser Docksider
  • Model Power 2-8-0 (old timer)
  • Rivarossi Heisler (1st run) 
  • several train set 0-4-0s
  • AHM RS-3

HO -kits to build

  • Tyco General 4-4-0
  • Tyco 4-8-0
  • Roundhouse Class C-3 Shay
  • Keystone Class A Shay

HOn3

  • Keystone Shay (unbuilt)
  • Ken Kidder Porter 0-4-0T
  • Roundhouse inside frame 2-8-0 (unbuilt)

Also about 5 Lionel locos.

That's what they are, in prototypical colors.  They were demonstarted on CN and arrived painted in the colors at the time.    Decals were on an Accucal sheet.

So they aren't a figment of my imagination!

Hi there Bob,

Is that a pair of CN decorated PA Units I see in the top left corner?  Just wondering... it is your railroad to make a "what if" after all!

 

Cheers from Down Under

It is a whole nuther topic, JaRRel, but I wonder if we should operationalize "best runner" so that we know what you mean....since you introduced it as a sub-topic.
