Re: [Re: P2K articulated???]

I copied this from the Santa Fe list.
Apparently Proto 2000 has decided to do a steam engine, in what they call
their "Proto 2000 Heritage Steam Collection". The unit, a 2-8-8-2 is
modeled after the N&W #20xx series of units. ATSF acquired a few of these
during the war and sold them to the Virginian Railway in 1948. ATSF
numbered the units in the 1790-1797 series. P2K will release the unit in
two ATSF numbers, 1790 and 1791 as well at N&W 2011 and 2019 as well as
undec. Price is in the $375 range. These were 20 mph units. They had
good boilers and if ATSF hadn't dieselized, the boilers might have ended up
on the 3751 class.<<
