Mountain Model Imports On30 4-4-0

Given that most of the PEIR’s early twentieth-century locomotive fleet was made up out of 4-4-0’s being able to procure a decent one for my own layout would be a major factor for consideration for the move “up” to On30. Bachmann has a very sweet little 4-4-0 in their line-up. I’ve seen the model in person and it’s quite a sharp piece of work. Nice as it is though it isn’t exactly right and it would be nice to have one that is closer. I just saw this listing on the Mountain Model Imports (MMI) website announcing a new On3/On30 4-4-0. This one is based on a Baldwin prototype and it is the real deal. Just look at this picture:

…and here, from the Picturing the Past site, is what we had on the Island:

The model isn’t inexpensive but I’ve read favourable reviews of other MMI models and think this one might be worth saving for.
