Anyone have one of these and can share some information about it please? They seem to have been issued and then very few reports of use surfaced. Are they somewhat 'rare'?
I've not seen the Lionel version in person before (think I saw a K-Line model awhile back on a table) but just bought the Boston & Maine version used from a shop for what I perceive to be a decent price. How are they in actual use? Will assume that Lionel 'improved' the original K-Line design with the motor layout and the better electronics but how about the smoke output? Is this a better smoke unit than some of the other Legacy steamers that all seem to suffer from the 'blinks of death' that ALL of my Legacy diesel & steam locomotives have suffered.
Your photos will be appreciated as well. Thanks!
