A friend of mine (yes, I DO have friends...) showed up at my door last night with a large box under his arm. In that box were his four shiny, new River Raisin USRA 0-6-0's. Seeing he doesn't have a layout, he wanted to test run and have me photograph them.
He's dropped some serious coin on these, but with River Raisin, you do indeed get what you pay for. These guys run like Swiss watches, are detailed per the individual railroad are DCC and sound ready.
He doesn't mind showing them off, so here they are in a family portrait.

and PRR in glorious Brunswick Green:
I've got to find a better angle so it doesn't look like the water plug is growing out of the stack...
