A meeting of two O gauge legends- a Marescot French-made Etat Pacific of 1928 and the Lionel scale Hudson of 1937. The Marescot Pacific is something I got recently, so I brought it to our monthly club gathering and another member brought his scale Hudson. Quite a treat to see the two of them together. The Marescot is indeed a beautiful model. As I understand it, these were produced by Robert Marescot in 1928, who is credited as being the pioneer of the "fine scale" model in O gauge. After 1928 Fournereau continued production of his line of trains, creating some wonders of their own. This loco has the "RM Paris" maker's mark underneath (Robert Marescot, Paris), which I understand is the means of differentiating the Marescot production from that of Fournereau, who I understand also produced versions of this model. A video is included of the engine running, enjoy!
