I'd been curious about the Plymouth switcher for a couple of years and when it came out in Western Pacific colors, I had to have one. Of my fifteen engines, this one intrigues me like no other and the most amazing thing is it cost less than any of my other engines. It creeps at a realistic speed, has a wealth of detail for such an inexpensive piece, and features first-class lighting fore and aft. Although not a great puller, it's respectable for a small switcher and looks fabulous on my layout at a nice scale speed. What really grabbed my attention was the smoke. At lower voltage it's barely perceptible, but with extra voltage, it's smoke output is better than any of my four steamers. In a nutshell, this engine is a steal. I will probably get another one just to have in case anything happens to the one I presently own. A great score at a very good price.
