I’d like to assemble in HO a C&O Allegheny coal hauling consist for running.
I’ve looked online and there have been several manufacturers over the years which have made an Allegheny in HO scale.
I do not have any real experience, in HO, to be able to discern which manufacturer and year of production would be the best of the lot.
My personal preferences lean towards brass, but I’m basically interested in an accurate model and a good runner. The model does not need to have DCC or sound.
All suggestions are appreciated
