Twas better to make a Mikado out of a Berk by swapping down the trailing truck than it was to turn a 736 into a 4-8-4 by installing the world's worst leading truck.
I still remember seeing that beautiful set in a train store in Beachwood Mall with my grandmother in 1983. I wore that catalog out that year in record time, although I'd do the same the following year with the Pennsy FARR set and the NYC Hudson (1984).
While I've pretty much gone scale, there is still a place in my heart for that Southern FARR set. It may yet make it to my mantle or display shelf.
