Several replys have mentioned traction tire replacement. Can someone share the source/size for replacement tires  for a Southern 2-8-2? Thanks!

MTH DE-0000025 tires are what I use for Williams and Weaver 2-8-2's.


Same here on the 2-8-2.  The list I have shows to use DE-0000031 for the 4-6-2 and the N&W J 4-8-4.

As far as replacing tires, they're no more difficult than replacing tires on MTH steamers.  I use 2 tiny flat screwdrivers and work my way around the tire with one while holding the tire steady with the other.

How easy is it to change the tires on the williams crown edotion engines?

When I changed the tires on my J, it took about 10-15 minutes, two small flat head screw drivers for the tires worked well.
