Since downsizing from my larger 12' X 17' layout to a smaller 9' X 9' layout, I would like to find a Lionel TMCC (with cruise) or Legacy small Union Pacific steam engine to run on this "display" layout.

An engine about the size of an E6 Atlantic would be considered.

THANKS in advance for all recommendations!

Thanks!

STANGTRAIN,

        Lionel did the Southern Pacific A-6 Atlantic engines in the 2018 Volume 2 catalog. They were delivered around August/September 2019. One if which was decorated in UP Grey Model # 1931180. It may not be 100% prototypical it is a real nice engine as my friend Ray has one. You should be able to find one of the forum sponsors that has one. Try Nicholas Smith first he usually has a good selection.

Are Lionel’s light, and or heavy, Mikados too large for your layout? My Heavy Mikado runs on my O36 track okay and safely negotiates O48 FasTrack switches. (Though I do operate at slow speeds.)

Every steam layout needs the Geep of steam locomotives, the Mikado.

Thanks for the UP A6 suggestion - now the challenge of finding a dealer that has one. It looks like just what I was looking for!

Thanks to all! I just placed an order for the UP A6 from OGR magazine advertiser Side Track Hobbies. I had a nice conversation with owner Al Rudman who told me he would test the engine before shipping UPS insured, signature required and ship with double boxing. Great service! And UPS shows that the package will arrive this Friday.
