    I've got a hodge-podge of engines. I buy when I've got the extra funds, so here they are:

    Bachmann 2-8-0 Consolidation, Santa Fe (the original) - This engine recently suffered a major breakdown and is probably not worth repairing again.
    Tomix Thomas the Tank Engine - Thomas actually threw a gear the other day. He's in the shop waiting for repair.
    Life-Like FA2/FB2, PRR - Only the A unit is powered. Nice running little engine.
    Life-Like SW9/1200, NKP - Awesome!!
    Kato SD80MAC, Undecorated - Extremely awesome!!!

    Life-Like SW9/12 (THE only N-Scale switcher worth having in my opinion). Atlas RS3 & GP7/9. Kato RS3. Very happy with all of them.:)

    2-8-2 USRA now Great Northern (Qty 2)
    0-4-0 slope back tender switcher
    SD-7 Burlington
    SD-9 Burlington

    0-4-0 Slope back tender switcher ATSF

    GP-18 Northern Pacific (Qty 3)

    SW9/1200 Great Northern

    GP-50 Burlington (Qty 2) (good runners)

    The steam all runs smoothly as do the diesels, but without a doubt, the Atlas and Lifelike are very good.
    All are equipped with MT knuckle couplers.

    CPR = 9

    NS = 7


    SN = 1

    UP = 3

    CNW= 1

    MAT = 1

    JELX = 9

    These range all the way from SD-9043s to SW-9s,and are a mix of ATLAS,KATO,LifeLike and KATO repowered Bachmann units
