. When I purchased this tank engine on eBay I thought it would become a regular, but unfortunately I never managed to get it running. As with several of my locomotives, age, dirt, a disconected drive mechanism, or all three keeps it from working.
When I wrote to the new owner of North West Short Lines, the company that originally imported it, he gave me detailed advice and told me he wished he had one, too. Since I never managed to work on the engine, five years later I wrote asking if he'd like it for what I paid for it, because I wanted to pass it on and also for it to have a good home. So now it's on a shelf or a track in Montana. — GPL
