I bought (more like took it off his hands) this Williams J-106 PRR 4-8-4 from a friend at the Fort Pitt TCA meet this past Saturday. First of all I know it isn't prototypically correct, but I like it. It runs fine, though I haven't been able to get the True Blast II whistle and bell to work. That's not a big deal to me. However, since I was modeling in HO during the time period (late '80s to early '90s - I think) that it was made, I searched the forum for any information I could find on it. All I found was a topic on Williams brass engines. I made a similar post to this one there, and Pete @Norton told me this, "Mark, its not brass rather based on the Lionel Post War 746 N&W J. Williams repainted a few for other roads like yours."
Can anyone tell me anything else about this engine, such as year made, anything about the electronics, motor, etc? Thank you very much!!
