You can go off people very easily  :D

I liked your Challenger when you posted it a while back and now you go a trump that with posting your new Big Boy  :censored:

Beautiful machine, may I ask what number your Big Boy is as I cannot make it out in your pictures  :'(

You must do another video of your Big Boy - PLEASE

Yours very enviously

4019 is the number, took some serious net searching as almost impossible to get now.
It was the big boy that I was after first time round but could not locate one, so I bought the union pacific challenger,Then last week I decided to try again and spent a whole night sifting the net and I found a small shop in dallas who had the big boy and rio grande so blitzed my credit card. fineboy
Having trouble with my home internet at the moment and am tethering my mobile until EE get there act together,as soon as its fixed I will do a video with all 3 new steamers

Fantastic locos that make great models, I have an old Rivarossi HO big boy that I have had for years but nowhere to run it.
Keep on Smiling

FS: N Scale Athearn 4-8-8-4 Union Pacific #4006 that has been test run only for 15 minutes and was put back in the original box with booklet and remote for DC. Has three sound levels with the third being very loud for such a small engine. Beautiful engine with very nice detail and various sounds. These have been selling on ebay for $500 or more. I am selling this one for $435.00

Great loco but lots of $$$ Col, I guess it depends how badly you want a particular loco but for me I would be more inclined to  buy 3 brand new HO sound locos from the USA for the same money.

This is more than what I paid for mine $399.95 which was new from a store with 12 months warranty  . Its shameful people charging this kind of money for used.

Fantastic models with great sound, just thinking if I had to oil or clean the wheels on those brutes I think it would be enough to have me put in a straight jacket and loaded into a little white van  :D :D :D

Thank you John,
They are great fun, just love the sound and finish quality on these models. I now have 3 American steamers from Athearn and cant seem to stop running them. I am considering buying the intermountain cab forward with tsunami sound. I have to say that they sound much better in real life than on video. Fineboy

Thank you for posting this video of what well may be one of the most iconic railroads ever  :heart2:

I have a few Kato and Life Like Santa Fe locos and even though they are silent, they still look superb running round pulling some passenger cars  :thumbsup:

cheers John.

Thank you for the kind words, I have to admit these are my most favourite and when pulling my kato 8 car super chief set  it really is something wonderful to watch, I am in the process of adding passengers to my coaches and then some weathering.
Not all my trains have sound but I have to admit since I discovered American sound its kind of addictive in the fun side of the modelling and makes running them much more fun. Fineboy

Great loco and sound and an enjoyable video.

Unlike you lads I am not a fan of the Warbonnet livery so my AT&SF locos get a soak in oven cleaner and a spray paint into my own fictitious railroad livery, like you John my E8s are Lifelike models which are beautiful runners.
Keep on Smiling
Dave.
