In this video, I perform maintenance on a Lima ‘Deltic’ that I purchased with some other trains. These locomotives are not the best performance-wise but they are very simple to service, as I show in the video. They can also still be picked up cheaply, I paid $20 for this one as it was in non-working condition and has buffers missing.
The mechanics of this locomotive are very sound, however the blue colour does not match the era I model and so I will try to swap the body for a green one in the near future.
Hopefully this video will be popular enough to inspire me to bring other train repair videos to YouTube. I certainly enjoy repairing model trains (and saving money in doing so, too) and I hope you as the viewer enjoy watching and learning from these kinds of video.
I’ve also enabled Fan Funding so if you’d like to chip in, so that I can get more trains to repair on video, feel free.
