Biaggi CCS66 12921 In Operation

Purchased at auction September 2016. The model could not negotiate I-16 curves because the side rods came in contact with the center cab stairs. The stairs were removed from the center cab casting and re-positioned to allow for clearance, and two nose sections were moved further out on the center cab to allow for sufficient clearance on curves. The model operates beautifully with functional directional lighting.

Hello, Jim,

these are really nice layouts that you are showing us in your video clips. Where does the music playing there in the background come from? Is it some kind of jukebox or is it a mechanical organ, hurdy-gurdy or something like that?

This is from a collection of music for folk dancing that has long been out of print. Most of it consists of 78RPM transcriptions.
