763 NICKEL PLATE ROAD MTH 30-1316-1 763

763 NICKEL PLATE ROAD MTH 30-1316-1 763

I just bought this on ebay and the seller sold it as 30-1629-1 which is the newer version with PS3.   For $200 im ok with the PS2 and being a 10 year older engine.  I was wondering if there is a big difference between the too and if the 763 PS2 can be updated in anyway.  I dont have it yet but looking forward to getting it.  I really thought i would surely be outbid for that price but im sure when others figured out the misleading discription they walked away right away.  I do have PayPal protection if it is a bad deal. But that is my favorite MTH steam engine and road name and i never though i would own that. The Nickel Plate road engines are not exactly easy to find unless you pay $1'600.00 for a new Premeier engine and that is not in my budget at all.   Any advice of how i could atleast get the sound file with the most realistic steam whistle like the real engine. I have never heard a steam whistle that sounded better.....   thank you and i hope i didnt make a mistake. $200 to me is alot of money.  Heck i just bought my first 2 remote fastrack switchs the other day for that amount but they add a whole new level of enjoyment to it20170421_084629d_8531

The main differences, that I know of, is the PS3 version doesn't have a battery. The PS3 version has the draw-bar tether where the PS2 has the plug-in cord and maybe a few detail differences. I think the PS3 version has LED lighting where the PS2 has incandescent lighting. Overall, not a bad deal. $200 is probably the max I would spend on that engine, but that's me. It does look good though.

Thank you very much.  I hope the steam whistle sounds like the 765. Saw that last June on a Chicago to Janesville excursion run when it stopped in Fox Lake.  I have been in love with that engine ever since. Seeing one full size running is nothing short of amazing. It was a Iron Fire breathing beast on rails.FB_IMG_1492810239155FB_IMG_149281025785120170421_084629

I have this locomotive. It was the first locomotive I ever pre-ordered. It is early PS-2 with the original 5.0 volt board which some have had trouble with. I have however run mine extensively, and never had any issues with it. The sound set is pretty good in my opinion. I had the original Rail King NKP berkshire upgraded to PS2 a couple years ago, and selected a different, later PS2 Berkshire sound set. The crew talk is different but the whistle and bell sounds are fairly similar. Enjoy your new locomotive.
