I was in the train room today and brought down my Big Boy from its shelf from and ran it for the first time in over a year. I was real pleased with it. It ran perfectly and smoked a ton. This came out in 2008 and was the first Legacy Flyer engine.
I know people felt it had lots of issues with trucks and stuff, but it runs better than my Challenger and Y3. Never a problem with its smoke unit like the others.
Our big train show is in Plano TX in three weeks and I think to will go to the club layout at the show for the first time since it was new.
The value is $682 according to Greeburgs. Not too bad.
