Quote from: ebtnut on September 08, 2011, 01:26:33 PMI agree with CNE that a Civil War-era 4-4-0 (the William Mason comes to mind) would be an excellent choice. I'm sentimental for the early Ma & Pa 2-8-0's, which fit in better with the Richmond 4-4-0 and the 4-6-0.
Quote from: Doneldon on September 09, 2011, 01:00:55 PMWhen brass made its big entry into the market in the late 50s and early 60s, the prices were anywhere from $50-60 all the way up to a couple of hundred. That was prohibitively expensive, especially on a teenager's nonexistent salary. Today those early locos mostly sell for $200 - $450.
