    I need a "Mountain" loco to pull one of my pre-diesel "Orange Blossom Special"s. The SAL describes those Mountains as "modernized" M1's or M2's.

    I've only two options, the Spectrum Light Mountain or the new (much more expensive) Spectrum Heavy Mountain.
    Which loco best replicates the SAL M1/2 prototype?
    Have I missed any other available models?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Well, as y'all can see the SAL M2 has the tapered nose like the Spectrum
    Light Mountain. So. I'm assuming that's the way to go.
