Yes, I have been out of it for a few days and actually got this model last week and meant for archonforest to see it as I think he might like it. Just trying to be helpful and share resources.
I found another model of an old French engine as well and may do something with it too.
I don't really speak "train", ha, but I know there are many many types of engines that have progressed over the years here in the states.
I remember my brother getting called for certain train numbers, which designated the route back in the day.
