    Does anyone know where to purchase a Plymouth style switcher locomotive? I have one that I have had for years. It was made by Lima in Italy I think mine is smoked!:eek: :eek:

    I'd like one too. Believe it or not...for O scale. I'd like to turn it into an 18 inch gauge mine locomotive.

    SLUSSERS:

    Good news.................Bachman is coming out with a new switcher
    in the Plymouth style...I think I read that it will be in the $15.00 range and come in a variety of roadnames. I think release is set for late April or early May

    If you can't find someone willing to take advanced orders let me know and I'll ask around.

    Just checked the Bachmann site , www.bachmanntrains.com
    Check on 'n scale'
    Check on 'motive power'
    Go to page 4

    I think you'll find 3-4 listing for the new Plymouths. (not yet released)

    ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

    I don't think it's a new release - Spookshow describes it (right down to the #60066) as being from the late 80's.

    I have...

    ...one. It's a cast off from when my brother bought one- prolly back in the 70's.

    There it sits in the cigar box. I wonder if it still works?
