This is essentially a re-release of the loco that they made about 25 years ago (I have one.) It’s the “traditional” somewhat underscale NYC L-3 that MTH has long made. This iteration’s color scheme has added a red cab roof and a yellow cheat line to the tender which is pleasing, but I really can’t comment on its authenticity, as the post WW-2 passenger blue color schemes are not my favorite. Of course it still has the coal tender which should be oil. There are also offered 60 foot clerestory standard passenger cars in matching postwar colors. It’s a good beginner set for someone who just wants a train to represent the T&P.
But an accurate O gauge model of a Texas and Pacific steam passenger engine still eludes the TP devotee.
