Hey guys,

I posted a topic a while back on the HO forum about aquiring and repowering a few Rivarossi C-420s for some projects I want to do. Just currious if anyone has heard if Life-Like is planning on releasing one for the P2K line or not? Is Hornby going to continue the production of the Rivarossi 420s or should I snap 'em up now while I can?

Just currious.

I didn't know the locomotives were still in production.

I have a Lehigh Valley version of the model that I got back in 1995 - almost 10 years old and still running strong.

I may have to pick up a couple of more if they're still around...

I have a pair of them. They run fine. I added DCC to them, and reversing lights. They also pull very well.
