I have one of these from the original Lifelike run a
few years ago (without sound or DCC). It is a beauty
and includes a 18000 gallon fishbelly tender -
basically as the locos appeared in the 1940s-50s.
Although mine pulls well the new run is supposed to
have traction tires (the 1st run did not) which should
improve drawbar performance.
