    I don't think I posted in this thread yet. Here is my old, original version Rivarossi Kraus-Maffei from the early sixties:

    And here is my little old cheap Rivarossi 0-4-0T from about the same era:

    This little switcher runs but is a rubber band drive and does not run to well - it is jerky. At one time you could buy a kit to replace the rubber band drive and make it a direct drive. Don't think you can get those anymore.

    Ah, the Athearn "Hustler".

    BTW, your "Casey Jones" 4-6-0, above, was made by Liliput in Austria. I have the same loco, Lettered for the Pennsy and in its original Liliput box. My late older brother got it as a gift in the early sixties.

    This is the only Lionel engine that I have. It runs ok but not as good as my Athearn engines.

    One of my old Tyco units. These units run ok but I am not a fan of the pancake motors. To me, they are not easy to work on.

    Tyco made a lot of junk but never an FM C-Liner model, that is an AHM C-Liner, again another poor running model, the later Life Like models put it to shame. I got rid of mine at a garage sale after getting my Life Like units.

    You are correct sir. I went look at it again -- my bad, I thought it was a Tyco unit.

    Bet it sounds like a coffee grinder. Cox had some identical ones back in the 70s, made by Athearn. A similar GP35 was among my 1974 Christmas presents. The grand opening:

    A couple of years ago I found an identical one for my nostalgia fleet.

    Man, I had a lot of hair... :ROFLMAO:
