Like many of you out there, I'm an avid steam engine fan. :thumb: Particularly I like C&O, NKP, and NYC power. Thankfully, in recent years there have been dozens of awesome ready to run models available for those of us who haven't the money for brass. :mrgreen: I thought it might be interesting to survey everyone's favorite steam engine manufacture and find out why they like them. And for all you kitbashers, which models are the best to start from?
