    Hello fellow modellers,

    I was wondering, what are the best steam locos... I know all about that site, spookshow, or what ever...

    But I was wondering about your personal experineces...

    And I want to have one, just to add it to my collection... What loco shoud be my first one? I really like Heavy Mikado from kato....

    Waiting for opinions...

    best regards

    The MDC 2-8-0 is great.

    A lot of the Bachman's don't run well out of the box, but you can buy them today from Model Expo for $63-70, so you can afford to buy a couple looking for a good one.....

    in fact, looking at my range of boxes, there are a lot of good steamers, some are real old and need re-motoring and tender pickups.
