    I have for sale one N scale Model Power 2-8-2 Light Mikado equipped with DCC and Sound (aftermarket). The DCC decoder is the ESU LokSound Select Micro with a sugar cube speaker and a fair amount of capacitance for keep alive. Here is what I have done to this to make it a better locomotive:

    I have added several items to increase the detail from the standard Model Power 2-8-2. I added separately-applied handrails to the boiler, added front and rear air hoses, and a fireman figure in the cab. In addition, I have also added a firebox flicker on the rear of the boiler, in the place where the opening to the firebox would be. It's quite realistic, and due to the configuration settings of the ESU DCC decoder, can be configured a number of ways (smart firebox flicker, regular firebox flickers, etc.)

    I also changed the tender from the standard medium tender to a C&O long tender from Bachmann with increased and less friction electrical pickup. I modified the tender near the connection between the locomotive and tender so that both could be connected.

    It runs beautifully, and runs on address 786 (but can be renumbered very easily).

    I am asking $200 shipped via USPS Priority.

    Pics uploaded later today.

    It comes down to storage space, and what it costs us.
