Hey Errol, no fair making fun of my brain!
$39.99 for a Big Boy! What.....It wasn't bad looking when you took the big wind up key out of it?
Jon....I have one IHC 2-8-0 Consolidation I picked up at a show for under $50.00. Runs pretty good and dosen't look to bad......After you take out the big wind up key(Just kidding)
I've got sumthin' for ya. Look at
http://www.corbins.com/powder.htm (the bullet people)
For 20 bucks they will sell u 7000 grains (a pound+/-) of tungsten powder which you can pour into the nooks and crannies of those lil' switchers for extra weight.
It is 1.7 times heavier than lead. It ain't cheap, but when I ran across it, I thought it would be ideal for my IHC's. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list!!! Think it'll wurk??
