For as small as that engine actually is, it is certainly possessed of a whole lot of wonderful and beautiful detail!

Lovely!!!

This old Newbie has been collecting for nearly thirty years but not a frequent poster. First "Victoria" I've seen in all those years.

Very well done, Brent!

That Victoria is a wonderful and rare example of E Plank history.

Thank you for posting it here.

beautiful engine, and rare!
Please share some of your other rare engines with us- I have seen a few at Cabin Fever and Coolspring that I'm sure others would love to see.

Hi Brent, I like your coffee mug with the Improved Ericsson on it. Was it from Coolspring and do you think they still have them?
