$400 or so for something this nice; I have the Lionel TMCC version (so old it has no Odyssey), but if this Wms brass one comes up for $400 - $500...I'd be tempted.
Sell the Lionel (but then I'd have to put in ERR Cruise Control/RS...but that's only
$200 or less...) and keep the Wms. Probably better gearing.
Probably won't, but an idea.
Sam - don't know who the builder on these Wms Masterpiece Hudsons/Cab-Forwards/2-6-6-4's were, but the construction technique "fingerprints" often seem a lot like those on some 3rd Rail products that I have seen and/or have. They do seem to be better-built/more robust than 3rd Rail items, though. But, I do not have enough data to actually know that. Arrangements come and go, anyway.
