    Further Oldies - in the U.K.

    I've got a number of HO units that qualify:

    A CB&Q Chinese Red GP30 in a YELLOW Athearn box!;
    A Lionel GP7/9 - Northern Pacific # 0597 with a bizarre driveline of nylon shafts and rubber bands to the trucks. Unfortunately it needs a new nylon shaft;
    Various Athearn F Units;
    An Athearn Pacific, with damaged motion unfortunately so it's a static external replica at present;
    Two Lionel U18Bs, one in CP PACman livery, the other repainted from Soo Line to MEC;
    a variety of elderly Tenshodo brass units.

    I'll post photos when I get the chance.

    Since this thread has been resurrected and its content perhaps being viewed by new comers, let me point out that the loco illustrated here is no Tyco. In fact, it is an early effort by Athearn, circa 1960, that was sold under the name the "Little Monster." Athearn based it on an MR article/drawings by Linn Westcott and it was an 0-4-2 by design.

    I saw somewhere in this thread that somebody had a loco with a scratchbuilt drive. That's pretty cool.
