    I have a Toby model of 1522 that I am willing to sell. Now that I have Hudson number 1067 to pull my "Sunnyland," I need to reduce my roster a bit and raise some capital for G scale track (It's expensive!)

    This is a very unique model. I bought it new in 1968 in college by saving lunch money. Don Wirth customized it for me when the prototype 1522 restoration to operating condition was being considered. He changed the main driver set to Scullin discs, installed a can motor, chrome plated the cylinder heads, superdetailed everything that could be seen, then painted, decaled and finished it superbly with "first time on the road" very light weathering. Then he took it to the STSLSA board meeting and showed it, saying "This is what our engine will look like when it is done." It is a museum piece.

    The model has some running time on our layout and lots of posing for photos. It runs quietly and well, and it will pull a fairly long passenger train. You can see numerous photos in the HO models thread, "Camellia Park, Alabama."

    I am offering it to this group only, for the next five days through June 30 midnight. The highest offer by that time wins. Because I trust the integrity of you guys, I will send it to you and then you can send me a check in return. If you don't want it, I ask that you return it along with payment of my shipping/postage cost.
    Please contact me by email (do not use the private message option or forum thread) with an offer or questions at mymcelreath@ gmail.com.

    Look at the photos in the March 21, 2017 posting in the "Camellia Park, Alabama" thread under HO Models forum.

    This beautiful locomotive should bring a handsome price. With Don Wirth's special touches, it is truly unique.
    If I did not already own one, I'd be all in.

    A question has been asked whether this model were DC, DCC OR DCC ready. It is straight DC, but Don Wirth has installed DCC with sound in one of his, and it sounds fantastic.

    Probably should be checking this forum more than once a week because I miss out on stuff like this :rolleyes:

    Gorgeous model, as expected.

    Hope you received what you were hoping for and I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for other 1500s.
