    Anyone know how these old gals run, assuming they're in good condition?

    Body is very similar to the Athern, but different mech, shorter wheelbase.

    The mechanism is the power truck from their 4 axle diesel. They have brass wheels that get dirty quickly, but they really run fairly good for a 40 year old toy loco. A little jerky, but not bad.
