Fine Art Models 1 Gauge C&O H-8 Allegheny 2-6-6-6 Steam Engine Case & Controller
Chesapeake and Ohio H-8 Allegheny. 2-6-6-6 Steam Engine and Tender. One Gauge 1:32 Scale. This model is simply awesome. I recently tested this set and the engine went nice on the roller track. I tested forward and reverse, slow and fast and it worked very nice. First the rear set of six wheels starts to go then the front six start until they are all going in rhythm. There is some impressive engineering required to make that happen. The sounds didn't work when I tested and I'm sure they do, but the two nine volt batteries in the tender need replacing. I wasn't about to mess with the model and risk damage.
I noticed some exposed brass showing on one side of the engine cab, please review the close-up picture. It looks like one of the brass panels moved just a little which is causing the exposed brass to be visible.Set includes the roller base, acrylic top, instructions, controller and wood storage box. The roller base will allow you to run the train in-place on the mahogany base and you can hear the incredibly sound system (two speakers built into boiler) and watch the unit run. The pin was stuck and I didn't want to risk damaging the details messing with it. The unit could be wrapped in-place on the board and picked up, depending on location. I don't want to risk damaging and this seems to be the best option. There is nothing wrong with this set and I have included all the details I know. Let me know if you have any questions.
