    Okay, so it's not a major delema (spelling?), but I need to know guys. Do I buy a Big Boy, or a Mountain Engine? I've got plenty of 22in curved track that the Mountain Engine can easily go around. I love the Big Boy, but am afraid I may only have one particular track (long straightaway with very wide curves). On the otherhand, the Mountain will likely be able to run most anywhere on the set, plus allow me a little more room for a couple more sidings and businesses along the run. The Mountain engine looks pretty cool too. It heavy, powerful, big------but I had my heart set on a big boy. But, maybe reality and practicality is bringing me back to earth. What do you think?
