    So it seems the PRR tried streamlining some K4 4-6-2s. Wondering if anyone anywhere has produced a model of this. I've never seen one, but I gotta have it!

    I'm pretty sure it's been done in brass !! Might be nice idea for someone now making a "regular" K-4 (like Spectrum or Broadway Limited) to think about.

    BTW Lionel made a streamlined 2-6-2 steam loco back in the 30's based on a streamlined K-4.

    Yeah, I found one in brass... Came as a set only, with 4 lovely heavyweight passenger cars. All exquisite... For the bargain price of only $7,000... Just a hair out of my price range I fear... Definitely agree one of the BLI/Spectrum/MTH types who make K4s now could add a streamliner and probably get a good reception.

    Urgh. Be careful what you wish for... I found one - nice brass version in great shape... Over $500... Hmmm. Shhhhh. Nobody tell my wife...
