So, awhile ago Lionel made a legacy polar express tender, and a legacy pm 1225. I cant afford a legacy engine, but I can afford a tmcc Berkshire. I wanted to know if it was possible to hook a legacy tender up to a tmcc locomotive, and if it would work properly? If that is possible I am going to buy a legacy pe 1225 tender and then buy a 2003 tmcc berk, then put a pm 1225 shell on it. All help is appreciated.
Buy the Legacy locomotive.
FWIW, I was involved in a situation where two locomotives were sold, one TMCC and one Legacy. The tenders got swapped, and the Legacy tender was actually working just fine on the TMCC locomotive. OTOH, the guy that got the Legacy locomotive and TMCC tender had a problem. We got them swapped back, but it was an interesting situation.
