I would be interested in your opinions on the
command, not conventional, 0-8-0's produced by
Lionel and MTH.
Features that are important to me are:
- detailed valve gear
- smooth slow-speed operation
- well designed, reliable eletrocouplers
Nice to have but not necessary:
- four chuffs per rev
- good smoker (but must be adjustable or on/off)
- directional lighting.
The engine is intended to be one of two shifters in
my yet-to-be steel mill layout, and I expect it to be
viewed up close during most of an operating session.
Also, I'm not tied down to any particular command system.
Thanks for any help,
