Re: [HOsteam] Remember Aristocraft?

Aristocraft steam was before my time, too. Like you I've seen quite a few
on eBay and have even been tempted to bid on a couple. I wonder how
well they ran?

Hi All,

While we are all discussing the upcoming resurgence of steam in HO, does
anyone on this list remember the variety of locos that AristoCraft made in
the 1950's? I'm too young to remember those days, but I'm constantly
enjoying seeing (new to me) Aristo HO steam locos appearing on eBay and at

From what I can tell, there was a resurgence of interest in
turn-of-the-century (1900, that is ;-) steam and AristoCraft fed that
interest well.
