54075Re: enough of the locktite, geeze! any what HOn3 brass is good?
- Jul 2 3:57 AMI have three Hallmark brass EBT engines -- #14, #18 and the M-1
motorcar. The steamers have a reputation for being good runners, even
though they were imported 20 years ago. I would agree with the
sentiment here expressed that you have to pick and choose your brass --
but in some cases (like the EBT) you really only have one other choice,
and that's to build your own. I don't see Blackstone manufacturing any
of the EBT mikados in this lifetime.
