I’m waiting on my GTW F3’s myself

Time to turn off the NCAA B-ball and go to bed.  You played hard today and deserve a rest.

I can’t explain it... but I have a taste for a LARGE taco.

I didn't preorder any, but might look for some that were preordered by someone else who died while waiting for them to arrive.

I wish they would have made them in conventional, as they are rather pricey.

What do you mean by “conventional”?

Are these any different than the ones that came out a few years back?

I got one in 2016 off Ebay for $190!!!  Found a broken wire going to one of the trucks, easy fix.

It wasn't in the RR I wanted but for that price I couldn't resist.

Fine running engine.  This one still has 3-rail wheels but runs on 2-rail code 148 track, using BPRC vice TMCC.

Conventional operation, without the added expense of TMCC.  Many other Atlas engines are sold this way, but apparently not the F3s.

I believe Atlas O Master Line engines, like the F3, only come with TMCC.  You can get many Trainman Line engines with or without TMCC.
