    You've got this one I guess.

    I bought mine when they released it as a Mantua Classic. It had some problems (loose parts), but nothing that couldn't be fixed.

    I believe it is a Mantua 351603 Undecorated 2-6-6-2t Articulated Logger HO Scale, year unknown to me.

    A few changes but I'd say this is it.

    Good find. The Mantua 2-6-6-2 has been around for quite a while. It started as a kit and they later produced it as a ready to run. I have a tender version that needs DCC before I can run it on the club layout - someday.[:-ashamed]

    Mallet Find!



    I found this Mantua 2-6-6-2T at Timonium on Saturday. It's been redone previously- all-metal body, windows, and a nice,newer motor. It has Made In USA stamped all over it. The paint had been redone. The paint job isn't the greatest, but better than I'd do.

    By the end of Sunday, I had converted it to DCC with a working headlight! It runs pretty nice. Eventually, I'd like to do some paint work to it, but I'm pretty happy with what I've been able to accomplish with it.

    I looked at the HOSeeker website to see if I can figure out how old it is but no luck. Does anyone have any ideas?
