Okay, you have me hooked. A visit to Mr. Muffin's is now on my bucket list. Next time I travel east via auto I'll pay you a visit and have a muffin with you (after the mandatory pause en route to genuflect in front of 80 East Jackson in Chicago, of course).

I received the New York Central Battleship Gray Pacific 6467 and complimentary 5 car set for Christmas. The locomotive and cars are magnificent and the paint scheme is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks to my dealer, B&F Hobbies in Wakefield, Rhode Island. https://greenmountaintrains.wordpress.com/

Hmmm. I like Big Four models and have the Premier Hudson set, as well as the Railking brown/ cream cars. Also a Williams 6467 Pacific and a Railking 6467 on the way. Am unfamiliar with the Southwestern Limited set. What's the part # on that set?

A friend of mine ordered the Railking version of the 6467. Railking or Premier, it really is a beautiful model. I'll take some photos of the Railking version and post them on here when he gets it home.

Exceptionally nice MTH Southern Ps-4 engine with the crescent on the cylinder, but Mike who knows better, continues to issue them with incorrect red cab roof. He shipped me #1396 MTH's first Crescent Limited Ps-4 with the correct green roof after I did some research for him, working with Mark Hipp his brother in law ( Ps-4 located top right below with the too long T/A Studios TMCC upgrade engine tender connection wires). I still have the outer shipping carton marked "green roof" with a...

Another bogus locomotive from MTH. The new pacifics are basically USRA heavy pacifics dressed up to sell to non-suspecting B&O fans. The real P-7 were built by Baldwin in 1920's and like just about every Baldwin built pacific had the headlight on top of the boiler. As far as i know the B&O didn't have any USRA heavy pacifics. Here is the real President Washington # 5300. This is shameful MTH. You'll do anything to take people's money. You could have built ACCURATE , scale models of...

The one Pacific locomotive I would love Lionel or MTH to make is an accurate, scale model of the New Haven I-4 class 4-6-2 Pacific. The I-4 to the New Haven was what the K4 to the Pennsylvania. It has only been done as a brass piece never die cast. If anyone from Lionel or MTH is reading this please consider this locomotive. Being a New Haven fan this would be one I'd definitely order. The New Haven paired the engines with both Standard and Vanderbilt tenders. HO scale brass model from...

Following up on this conversation I finally have photos of the Railking and Premier NYC Battleship Gray Pacifics side by side. The Railking version (30-1767-1) on the left which belongs to a friend of mine and the Premier version (20-3743-1) which belongs to me is on the right. There are some detail differences between the two models but the paint schemes are pretty much identical. Both are beautiful models and a lot of fun to operate.

I am curious, does the Erie version have the Elesco feed water pump on the Engineer’s side of the boiler, ahead of the air compressor? I have the Lionel K5 in Erie and they omitted the pump. It was easily added, using a pump detail from Lionel... Tom

Re: MTH Premier Pacific Steam Engines arrived today.....

Tom, both the Railking and Premier versions of the Erie 4-6-2 are equiped with the Elescofeed water heaters and the Premier version appears to have the pump on the engineers side (at least it dose by the photo from Mr.Muffins) and the air compressors are on the fireman's side of the locomotive. The Railking version appears to not have the water pump detail on the engineers side judging by the photo on the MTH website. First photo is the Premier version and the second is the Railking version,...

Thanks Pete. I looked at photos of real Erie Ks equipped with Elesco feed water systems and some appear to not have the pump. Interesting. The look I was going for was like in the B&W photo. The last two pics are of my Lionel K5 with the feed water pump and related piping applied by me, using Lionel parts. Tom

There should not be a feedwater heater pump on the engineers side of the engine. The MTH rendition appears to be pretty accurate other than the visor is missing on the headlight and the running boards should be trimmed in silver, not white.

The Elesco feedwater pump is always mounted on the fireman's side. That's where the water connections from the pump and to the check valve are set up on the heater tank itself. There may or may not be an air compressor along with the pump on the fireman's side. Rusty

Depending on the era and the engine it could be both ways. I think when they were built new and green they were originally on top but then I know there's a painting of one of them centered. After they were rebuilt and blue most of them were centered. Either way, I think every single one of these Pacifics looks incredible and if I could I would get them all! So far my blue B&O arrived #5307 the ex-President Harrison who I happen to be related to. The President Washington and the Nickel...

We are down to just one of the B&O in blue.... MTH is sold out already..... i also received documentation on the gray NYC Pacific plus photos of it at the Big Four shops just SE of Indianapolis. They called it battleship gray. Pretty awesome. The Reading & Northern have been very popular. Just 2 of each left. I only have one more USArmy.

What is frustrating for me is MTH's Southern Crescent runs on O31 but the CNJ Blue Comet needs O42. One would think the wheel arrangement/frames would be the same or similar on these Pacifics to run on the tighter curves.

+1. Great pictures. Also helpful was the 1927 date of the photo. Hopefully someone more familiar can offer some information on the passenger cars the CCC&StL Pacific may have pulled. Were they just the typical Pullman green heavyweights or was a set of cars painted to match? Pete

Picked up my R&N 425 at my LHS yesterday. It had come in about 2 weeks ago but I've been quite under the weather. Here she is on the store layout getting her preacceptance run. When I opened the box and unwrapped the tender the deck plate dropped to the floor apparently not glued down. Just goes to show the folks who bemoan about Lionel QC that all manufacturers have issues.

Actually, that wasn’t far from the truth back in the days of the Sanda Kan factory. Lionel, Atlas, K-Line and an estimated 50 other model train companies globally did business with the factory prior to 2010. That changed when Kader, Bachmann’s parent company, bought Kader in November 2008 and sent companies scrambling to find manufacturing partners elsewhere in China less than two years later. They remain scattered today.

You're welcome! As to your second question, it would have hauled standard NYC Pullman Green coaches of the era. The grey only got as far as that one engine 6467. One has to wonder if anyone remembered 6467's one-time paint scheme when they were developing the Dreyfuss 20th Century Limited in the late 1930's...

My NYC CCC&StL Pacific arrived from Mr Muffin's today after touring the US. According to tracking it covered about 3,400 miles or about 2,700 more than required. Thank you Steve and Jeff. Its all good. Anyway the color is striking in person and runs fine. I already put a shorter drawbar on it and tried a few different cars to see if any would match. None do so I will probably just run it with pullman green heavyweights. Cars in order are a K-Line 1938 20th Century, K-Line Pacemaker, and...

Thanks Mr. Muffin for the great photos. Do you know of any color photos of real steam engines, that may exist, where you can see the bright orange color on the top side like MTH used on the cab roof and tender top of the Cresent Limited? Earlier MTH steam trains that were Proto 1 had more of a Rust-Oleum Rusty Metal Primer color on top. Just wondering which is more prototypical? I posted this question in the past but never got a response. Thought maybe a dealer like you may have been hit...
