Apparently it was fabricated by SamTech?

Okay, Guys. Here's the latest model offering of the Virginian AG 2-6-6-6. I think the color isn't correct but the sand domes look like they got the shape and proportion right this time. The number 906 is authentic and the placement of VIRGINIAN seems right on the tender side to me. Unfortunately they left the name off the front sand dome. It appears both engines swivel which will make many of you crazy!  It's gotten to be standard though unless you go for the very expensive brass import engines. The wheel arrangement is questionable but some may not find that an issue. Unfortunately, they did locate the bell wrong. The only available photo is of the right side of the engine so far so I cannot tell if the stoker engine is installed or in the right place. We can only hope. For some reason they built the engine with Stephenson valve gear. It seems every issue of a model always has something very right and something very wrong and this model holds true to that trend.

At least we now have another Blue Ridge to choose from! Enjoy! I have my standing order in and my Grandsons and I anxiously await its arrival.
