    Hi all,

    I just reserved a 2-8-4 Bershire. I was wondering if anyone else is going to invest in one of these. They sure look beautiful.

    I got mine a number of years ago when Rivarossi was still making them #9186
    One of the best locos ever made.

    It runs like a charm Ron. It is getting to be well used now and needs some maintenance

    I recently picked up a Concor/Riavossi Berk in pristine condition. But, I also have, from the good old days, a pair of the original MRC versions, both of which still run nicely. I will want one of the LL models, especially if they're as nice as the Mallet.
