Now hear me out . IF say you are in charge of the holiday decorating , and wrapping your present โ€ฆ. Wouldnโ€™t you be tempted to..???



Ive waited (19) years to get a Lionel Lionmaster 4-6-6-4 Challenger .. Got it in August off of the city by the bay , and wife gave me โ€œ permission to โ€œ testโ€ run it for 30 minutes .

After testing the maintainence shop reported two minor ( very minor), discrepancies (1). The tender speaker had a loose ground wire. ( 2), the screw holding the front drivers was loose . Quick work was done to both .. And the temptation was overbearing to ( you know what), ๐Ÿ˜‚. Test again!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚



A short slow speed run , insured that all is in good working order on the Clinchfield # 672 .  In honesty ? After reading some of the quality control issues W/ some of the newer legacy locos , most likely this one will be โ€œ in conventionalโ€ ( We have no train shops locally ) to repair those R2LC gremlins . Or R.S โ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

Canโ€™t wait until Christmas โ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚



P.Sโ€ฆ. Keep this โ€œ under wrapsโ€โ€ฆ..๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ›๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ›

I wouldn't worry about that. Just my experience, but I have a UP LionMaster Legacy Challenger, which has had no problems at all. As with many things, bad news gets all the publicity, and, particularly these days with social media, that makes people greatly overestimate the number of problems that actually exist.

Your new engine is certainly a Christmas present to look forward to!

Thatโ€™s the kind of thing a โ€œ Newโ€( to me) challenger owner likes to hear!!
