I have a Post War Scout, that runs well, but really sucks up electricity. And, of course, it runs really loud. And geez, the Sparks fly!
Did Lionel make any Steam Locos in the early 1970s, that are very well built, with nice detail, well painted, and run on less electricity? I am especially interested in smaller Locos, in 027 size, or just a bit bigger. (My track is 031, but huge engines make my layout look too small.) Plastic bodies are fine. Hopefully, no big ugly molding seams on it.
