Anyone else want one of these???

I wanted one until I saw how much they cost and how long it takes to design and build one. After that I was suddenly cured of my desire. :lol:

Oh; I'd like mine all assembled at delivery. I hate --and have trouble with--assembling things. :D

Those locos can cost at more than $10,000. They're cool, but considering what you can make in N scale at that price, I don't see how it's worth it.

I think a roughly 1/3 scale steam locomotive has more earnings potential and “glamour” factor than an equivalent n scale layout.

 

An update to this thread is that the railroad shown has shut down in advance of selling the land that it was hosted on.

 

Total costs for the construction of the locomotive itself was about $250,000
