Since I have just about given up, for the time being, any chance of a diesel switcher from Atlas, I was wondering if anyone had experience with the industrial critters made by Atlas and Rivarossi back in the day, and which show up on eBay from time to time.
Mainly, are they reliable runners? And is it easy to replace the big wodgy couplers with Kadees or similar?
If I remember correctly, the Atlas locos are 1:48 scale, while the Rivarossi versions are 1:43.
Not my first choice of locos but the options are few at the current time.
