    I am adding electrical pickups to 2 Bachmann AT&SF 4-8-4 tenders and repainting and renumbering them.

    Ray, are you going to work on the 4-4-2 atlantic? I'm really curious how it'll perform. Are they good engines, or not?

    I hope to get to the Atlantic soon. I have a few parts I need to locate for it, that's why it's been on the back burner.
    They are decent running locomotives . As with most MDC locos they take a bit of time and patience to assemble.
    Setting up and tuning the gears takes some fussing with, A can motor and flywheel will make a big difference also.

    Is the Atlantic the PRR version or the Harriman version?

    Mine is the Pennsy E6.
    To be a little more accurate I am changing the cylinder block and valve gear, I may toss the frame and mill a new one. I need a trailing truck and want to use a Bowser tender.
