Duchess of montrose
Captures the prototype perfectly with excellent pulling power if you are fortunate enough to have a big enough layout this will let you run full length trains. Lined up against the older tooling it's just that little better in ever detail. Wheels have the correct profile the fine detail is crisper the tender as lost it lip paint finish it very well done. Cab detail is wonderfully captured. I would recommend this model if your thinking of buying one.
