Roster Addition: T1 Duplex

Yesterday the Middle Division took delivery of a Broadway Limited Imports PRR class T1 #5501 4-4-4-4 duplex steam locomotive.

I had rostered one of the earlier BlueLine releases, but opted to sell it in favor of the "As Delivered" version with the classic portholes and the sound system already installed.

It may sit in the box for a while, though, as I'd really prefer #6111, which is my Society membership number. Problem is, being one of the two prototypes, it had the sharper nose and isn't really likely to be done. Broadway would have to redo the shell, as they did for this version, but the market would be a lot smaller.

My only chance is if the "Lionel factor" prevails!
