Hi Ken,

Any of them should fit, but since you are putting an Annie chassis on a standard line locomotive, there will be some slight tweaking that may be necessary, You will also have to paint the rims and, cylinders to match the 90020 loco.

There are two types of metal valve gear, Stephenson, and Walschearts.  you can chose which ever you prefer.  The loco in your 90020 set has the Stephenson style.

Both chassis do have the same great running version 5 chassis, so unless the metal valve gear is important to you go with the $47 chassis.

Have fun,

Bill

Thanks Bill for the reply, I do like the look of the metal valves. I already received annies for my two PRR engines. Was going to use the old chassis on the circus engines, but for the money I might as well replace them also while the price is right! Thanks for the info.
