Howdy Mike. That old PFM Prairie King is a great lokie. I inherited one from Muj and she runs like a watch. Many, many years back...a fellow brought me 2 of them and wanted a "Garratt" built. I used one superstructure, cut the tenders up into small ones that covered the motors, and built a brass platform for the boiler & cab. The loco looked pretty cool and ran great. It took some mental strength to whack up 2 nice brass locos like that but it was fun and the old loco is still around and running.
The Prairie King would make a fine rod loco for a log show, there were many used over the years. I say get another one if possible. Have fun.

Woodie
