    This is an Athearn 2-8-0 Consolidation. It doesn't belong on my layout, but I take it out of the box and give it a good run around when the purists aren't looking.

    I really like the colors of it, is it a strong engine?

    An interesting piece of history Zman. Don't worry about purists. Do whatever you want as it is your layout.

    I don't know how strong of an engine it is yet, but it won't have to work too hard. I've ordered a set of 4 Overton passenger cars with B&O colors to match. That's all it will have to pull.
