The guys on the KMRR are hapy with their new arrival - Hartland Big John. It came in yesterday and last night they worked on getting the knuckle couplers fitted on. What a nice looking engine and runs very nice. It actually runs quieter then my lgb porter -yet the reviews in GR said it ran a little noisy. It also has some weight to it, slipping should not be a problem. Here are a few pictures of it. Now the big decsion is do I paint it black and paint the decking to look like wood or leave as is????? Im very happy this engine as well as Hartland products. You cant go wrong.


My plow in the background on siding is getting a nice rust to it.

Nice little guy.

Looks like the frame is a flatcar and the wood siding looks like it comes from the gondola. Pretty clever there Hartland, good recycling of other products.
