A few years ago I bought a couple MRC C-420 engines. They look
fantastic, very fine detail and run great! Why don't they put out more

If you are talking about HO scale, Rivarossi now makes that model. They
bought Lima a few tears ago, Lima was the company that made it for MRC.
Rivarossi is currently producing this locomotive and as far as I can
tell it is identical to the MRC/Lima version with the possible
exception of the exact motor type... but performance is similar. It's
current list price is $80 as before, but in today's market it's not so
outrageous considering it's a European import. Is it worth 80 bucks?
Naa, but you can find 'em for between $50 and $60. I have a few of
them, but they are not going to be made into fleet locos. I have a
C420 in the works based on the original (with dynamics) Lima/PMI
shell, grafted onto an Atlas/Kato C424 walkway and hi-nosed. All fits
nicely on top of the Kato drive.
