At the club Saturday morning Chief Drew showed me the MTH Wisconsin Central SP-45 he purchased from @GG1 4877 (after I alerted him to the listing.)  I’d forgotten about the purchase until I saw its nose at the front of the last stall on the left.

TOGA 9.25 7

He ran it around the layout and put it through its paces.  Perfect purchase for a train guy from Wisconsin and his collection of Midwest locomotives and rolling stock reflects that passion.  (The C&NW diesels on the whisker track are his.)



Carl,

I am so happy to see the locomotive go to a good home and to hear that it is actually being run by someone who collects Wisconsin Central!  Here is an old photo of it on my modular layout when I last ran the locomotive in 2015.

Glad you saw my post, Jonathan.  Drew told me his Dad remembers seeing these run.  He gave the unit some TLC since the snow plow needed some attention, and he added to the lighting.  It ran and sounded great.  And it most assuredly found a GREAT home.  It will be run regularly and be well-maintained.

I'll pass along your comments and photo to him.
