    Old John English die cast locomotives

    when I aquired the two pacifics they had to be stripped and painted. Assembly followed disasembly. The kits were very simple. boiler, frame, axels, side rods, main rods, wheel retainer plate, trailing truck, lead truck, motor and that is the locomotive part. All detaily were cast on. a no frills locomotive. One loco has valve gear.
    The first photo shows the two locomotives taken apart. All parts were cleaned, painted then reasembed.

    Beautiful work- I have re-done a Mantua Pacific, repainting and re-motoring. I plan to chip mine for DCC control and sound, you?

    This is happening again. Last time you restored my ablity to edit only new posts. I put up with this. Now I have to many things. New photos and discriptions to replace old ones. If I can't edit, I can't put my work here. A partial repair woun't be enought. Please fix my editing ability.
