H-10 Western Allegheny showed up today from Trainworld. Those guys really know how to ship a locomotive; I asked them to double box it and they did including packing. See photos below. Shipper in a box and in a box!
Fantastic loco and tender, no blemishes, no stripped screws anywhere, hatches close flush. Put 15 drops Lionel smoke in stack and whistle and they smoke like crazy. Only 2 issues: the right rear lantern on the tender is dimmer than the other - maybe a misplacement of the led that I will look at if I ever get into the tender. AND the sound and whistle went intermittent BUT found a bunch of buffalo snow from the carpet layout wrapped around the lead pickup on the tender - DOH! Easy fix.
