Well finally found one without breaking the bank and paying those crazy prices on E Bay!! Had one in my hand at Pat's trains back when it was first released at $1300.00 and did not buy it. That was my biggest regret in my 45 yrs. of collecting trains!! As most of us know, this engine was a huge success for Lionel sold extremely well, with the price increasing very quickly. Now, just have to get it on the layout. Thanks to those who helped me locate this engine!!
