Evening everyone, A few weeks ago I picked up a few diesel brass locomotives. One is a Halmark and I was told here that those are almost universally poor quality. It was badly painted but that’s been cleaned up. The Nickel Plate units are both EMD F2 A-B sets. They are also in original boxes and the foam crumbling. There is no date stamp anywhere but the paperwork was done on a typewriter so I’m guessing mid 70’s. Are Nickel Plate products of decent quality? I’ve found almost nothing online so I don’t know. I’m giving serious thought to paint all of these up as a short line that I make up and put them on abandoned track sitting in the weeds. If none of them run well that’s the best use I can think of. Any opinions on Nickel Plate quality? Thanks. Rick H.
