Re: What is everyone working on?

Blackstone locomotives in the price range you mention compared to having to search/purchase for suitable brass locomotives and then have to spend hundreds of dollars more to fine tune the mechanism, add improved electronic control/sound, prep and paint the brass shells, decal the locomotive and tender.....and then you may have a locomotive equal to a Blackstone...are a bargain. 
If you revel in working with and massaging locomotives made of all metal and have decades old technology, then there is supply of those locomotives out there, for you. 

My opinion, only.

$600-$700 wouldn't be bad for a blackstone quality k-36 or k-28 with factory paint, dcc sound and lights. Brass k-36 with no paint easily sell for that much.
