This has been the hardest part of the gear accumulation, since only two PRR-prototype locos have been mass-manufactured to run on G-Gauge track, the Aristo 0-4-0, and the Lionel 4-4-2. I tried a used early Aristo 4-6-2 painted for PRR, but couldn't get get used to what looked like a USRA heavyweight pacific wearing PRR colors. PRR 0-4-0s--After listening to many hobbyists who kept telling me Aristo's engines were "lacking" in one way or another, I bid on an Aristo 0-4-0 and tender on Ebay, and got it for about $70. Recent measurements determined that Aristo A-5 is 1:29, except that it is 22 Scale Inches too short, measured front to back. The 0-4-0 takes relatively little juice to run nicely--it runs nicely on my 180' loop even with an HO starter-set power supply, although it runs smoother with Pulse Width Power (like Aristo's power supplies use). The tender has a built-in (if less than awe-inspiring) sound system with a hidden volume knob. The locomotive is detailed enough to look like it could run; most of the piping is there (although the sand pipes are molded on).
I often leave my 0-4-0 out (hiding in the tunnel) with a short train, so I can power up quickly on days I don't time to schlepp my "big" stuff in and out. For a detailed technical description of the locomotive and information on how to add lots of options to it, try George Shreyer's 0-4-0 Page. PRR 4-4-2s--I have always thought the Lionel Atlantics were noisy, foreshortened, and overpriced, not to mention that the sound in the expensive PRR version is incompatible with the rest of my equipment.


When I got it home and took it the rest of the way apart, I decided that the mechanism was sound enough to justify rebuilding the thing. George Shreyer tells me that the locomotive's overall measurements scale out pretty well to 1:32, although the drivers are too small. As you can see from the photo at the right, the tender that comes with the Lionel 4-4-2 is a little foreshortened, too, so instead of trying to track down another Lionel tender, I repainted a used Aristo full-length Milwaukee tender. To connect the Aristo tender to the Lionel locomotive, I put an LGB-style loop on the front truck and did some filing, etc. Since rebuilding my first 4-4-2, I've picked up a couple more in good working order (one in PRR colors, one in NYC). For an excellent technical description of many useful modifications, please refer to George Shreyer's tips page. AristoCraft Mikado and Pacific - In 2007, I got tired of waiting for Pennsylvania prototype locomotives that I could afford and bought two, a first-generation Pacific and a Mikado, both painted for Pennsylvania. The first-generation Pacific was used and a little flakey, so even if it might run on my uneven trackage, I need to tweak it a little to get it to run well. Lionel 0-6-0--The D&RGW kick started because I like the paint job on the Lionel D&RG 0-6-0.
Bachmann - We have had various Bachmann 4-6-0s as time went on, including the battery-powered ATSF ones which could barely drag their own weight around the track. When we were getting ready for the Holden Arboretum clinics, we also planned a Thomas railroad to take along as a display.


If you're interested in more information about Thomas and James, I kept a Blog about my experiences finding and using these locomotives, as well as setting up a Thomas-style railroad that I could move in a hurry. I have come across an LGB mogul, originally painted for DSP&P, which was repainted "Bippo Express" and subsequently smashed apart.
There is another Lionel PRR 0-6-0 in my garage, the motor works, but its missing a ton of pieces.

I've recently discovered that the pilot wheels for the Bachmann 10-wheeler fit the Lionel 4-4-2's pilot like they were made for it. At the ECLSTS in York, PA, I picked up an Aristo Long Tender (originally went with their Pacific) to attach to it.
