    I got my new Stewart Baldwin switcher today and I really love it. It took me about four hours to install all those grab irons and handrails, it was a real challenge to (for?, of?) my patience. But I managed it without breaking anything and now the loco is looking great. I like this old-fashioned look of these old Balwin switchers and I think the ATSF zebra stripes underline this look. Now I hope that Stewart will release a new run of their ATSF VO-1000. I got to have one with four smokestacks.

    Thank you for your nice comments. I installed a Digitrax decoder and made the first test run and I am very pleased with te result. The loco runs very well right out of the box without breaking in. No jump starts and it crawls at very low speed, which I think iis very important for a switcher. It is my first Stewart engine and I really love it.
