I'm getting excited over this engine. Very few engines of color in my fleet, mostly black. It'll be interesting to have a green monster running around the rails. Makes me wonder if the Hudson's come back around if would could get a green B&A like what Gary had talked about once before(I believe).

Yes, my MTH B&A hudson which is green.  More than likely I wouldn't be in for another one.  I had that engine converted to Legacy and she's a dream to run.

Again a big Thankyou to @MrMuffin'sTrains for doing all these special runs and to Lionel for seeing there's a market for special runs. 

Now just have to wait for Steve to pop it up on the website, pictures to start with, then the artwork. Hope this thing is a wonderous beauty just waiting for us. I can't wait. Good thing I'm ordering light again in the catalog. I wouldn't have ordered the as cataloged B&A engine, as it just looks to unexciting.

My black Kline berk is in dire need of a weathering job,  the one in the catalog would look great weathered.

Certainly hope they research the color extensively as for me personally, this 'K-Line Green' is rather unsightly after awhile. Ours sits on the club layout most of the time and looks somewhat odd at times. Hopefully it is closer to the beautiful HO model that Gary posted earlier. Just my personal opinion fellas...

Slightly off topic but this version would get me to open my wallet. SP bought ten of them from the B&M and then converted them to oil using this tender. Homely beasts but I love them. Lionel’s version is also correct as they were used for a short time burning coal.

I always keep my fingers crossed that a whaleback tender shows up someday.  Lucky for us Dave Olson is a SP fan and, I think sometime in the future, we will get one.

Same I do like that green.

  I’ve got a few of the A&R DVD’s. The B&A one has some great footage. The Central Vermont ones are a good watch. I believe it was one of the New Haven ones that had some bonus footage at the end. A B&A Berk. struggling up a hill with a Mikado pusher on the rear. The Mike had a switching style tender. It was probably just used in pusher service or on locals. I purchased the parts for the tender Lionel’s 1/2 off sale. This is something I really want to duplicate on my RR. Just need a donor Legacy Mike.  Someday it will get done.
