I have a really nice set of Lionel CB&O (6-19122 to 19127) California Zephyr Aluminum Cars. I don’t have a dedicated loco to pull them, and haven’t been able to locate the correct one in O Gauge.
I am considering a newMTH 30-1776-1 4-8-4 Imperial GS-4 Northern, or an MTH 30-1695-1 4-6-4 Imperial Streamlined Hudson Steam Engine, or an MTH 30-1699-1 Reading 4-6-2 Crusader Steam Engine. My choices are listed in order of preference.
What are your thoughts or ideas? I have a couple of MTH Proto 3 steamers and am very pleased with the operation, sound and smoke capabilities in conventional operation.
