Hi Guys, I have an original Vision Line Challenger (#3989) from back in 2011 or so. It is a coal fired engine with smoke lifters installed, and I like that look. I noticed the new versions of the UP Vision Challengers only include smoke deflectors on oil-fired versions, and the sole coal-fired version (#3981, 1931270) doesn't include them. Does anyone have this engine and know if the screw holes are in place so that, if I picked it up and wanted to order a set of lifters from Lionel parts, they could be installed later? Really appreciate anyone's help with this!
