Really enjoyed your excellent review of the MTH C&O M-1 which resulted in one of them, along with the seven matching passenger cars, recently coming to live here. About 70 or so years ago, I came across a full page picture/drawing of Chessie & her kittens Nip & Tuck playing as C&O M-1 circled around them. I kept staring at that image & just could not get it out of my 8-12 year old kid head. Darn, I really wanted one of those engines. Now, thanks to your great review, MTH, & my depleted bank account - I have one. THANKS
BTW, this is not the first time one of your reviews has prompted a purchase - an MTH Veranda also lives here because of your review.
