This exact engine is a great match for a custom Ann Arbor steam locomotive project which must be completed this fall. I am searching for the more simple (and more affordable) Signal Sounds version (model # ends in a W), which is all we need. There is also a command control version (which ends in 1838CC) that would also work, however it is overkill as we are only using this engine for a holiday display and do not have the Lionel command control system anyways so there’s no need to spend more for a bunch of extra features. Note that the recent ebay listings have been for the CC version. I realize they can be hard to find and will take a CC if it ends up being fall and I’m running out of time, but our budget is not up there where CCs are normally priced.

I have this engine, the only problem is that it was flooded in the Harvey storm that claimed a lot of my engines. It needs cleaned up and it still runs. Please contact me if you are interested?

I will have to pass on that one. Thanks anyways!

I have a PRR version of that engine with the signal sounds.  It's new in the box (I don't remember even test running it -- I think I picked it up at one of the "K-Line Days" at a local hobby shop years ago).

Major differences from the NYC version:

  • Pennsylvania on the tender instead of New York Central.
  • Raised headlight on boiler front instead of centered.
  • Bell between sand dome and steam dome instead of over headlight
  • Oxide red on the cab roof and tender deck.
  • L2s oval on side of smokebox instead of rectangular one on NYC version.

There are a few on EPay (have TMCC) if you want to see some pictures (search K-Line PRR Mikado).

Hello,

I have an engine number 1838 with command control for sale (K3670-1838CC). I only ran it a few times, but a mishap when moving resulted in a paint chip on the boiler's running board, a broken railing eye hook, and a couple small paint nicks on the tender. I am looking to get it moved to a good home, and maybe since you are already doing a custom project the cosmetic damage is something you will be able to repair as well.

If you are interested, my email is in my profile.

Thanks,

- Teddy
