Reply to "Thinking about vintage atlas, rivarossi, ahm"

For the most part, I agree with the above. The nice thing about the Atlas F9 is how simple the mechanism is, so it's easy (and fun) to modify so it can become a good "puller". I put a large CLW open-framed motor in one, added a bunch of weight, and it pulls quite nicely. And yes, I've had to replace the gears/axles/wheels on all of 'em; which is also easy to do...
