    No replies since September 5th 2019! My guess is when NWSL finally opens their new website, you will find good info. there. I always have. However, I would think a nice Mashima can motor would be a good bet.

    Sorry you haven't received any responses! Let's face it, so few people are re-working, re-motoring their locomotives; or even building from kits, simply because their abilities are pretty much non-existent!

    Good luck and have patience!
