He also mentioned that the 2-8-0 had to have the drive train reworked and 'should' be cataloged next year. I'm not sure I believe that as this catalog clearly says 2019-2020. We shall see.


   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   

Wow, I wonder what has to be reworked.  The motor takes up 1/3 of the boiler space:

I spoke with Will Holt of the NASG at the Indy show and he said MTH is supposedly aware of this problem and would have it fixed soon.

*** Edit***

Broke down and called MTH. Regina suggested I email my list to her. So I did. Maybe I'm nuts to think they'll make everything I've put on order, but we'll see...

Why stop there Jonathan?  Just ask for one of everything in the catalogue.😊

A simpler to disassemble, maintain, repair, and/or upgrade 2-8-0 would be good thing.  I converted one to TMCC, sound, and synched puff & chuff, and wished it had been easier to do -- 12 years ago.

In fact, its the only TMCC/Legacy engine that I kept out of the many conversions and factory such engines once in my collection.  I just didn't have the heart to sell it knowing that I won't ever attempt that again.  Besides it remains a lot of fun to run and Don T did such a good job on them.  Terrific attention to detail.  Closest thing in my opinion in S to truly a model engine that runs - and beautifully at that.

Well, I guess one of the reasons for re-engineering the 2-8-0 is DCS uses a tachometer, which is usually mounted over the flywheel with a tach stripe wrapped around on the perimeter.  I don't think the SHS drive has a flywheel buried in the housing.

It's going to be interesting to see what changes are going to be made to the 2-8-0.
