    Just a quick note: The photo shown is the 2-10-4, number 3829; the only 2-10-4 in that numbering series, all the rest were numbered 5000 thru 5035.

    From the looks of it BLI has done a gorgeous detailing job of my Santa Fe favorite!

    Yes that picture is from the FDT website.(only image) I'm sure the only difference is the trailing truck on these two models. sign1

    Getting excited about what?j/k

    You have good reason to be excited.

    They're great looking engines,but I prefer my BLI 4-8-4 Northern.The only problem is that they don't have RTC.

    Regulated Throttle Control:thumb:

    BLI was in a legal battle on the use of the technology at the time the Northerns came out.

    Love the 2-10-2,I liked mine when I had it!
