Triplex #2

 I actually have two Triplexes (Triplices?)  in my collection; the Erie and the Virginian.  Now, the Virginian's prototype Triplex was a 2-8-8-8-4 whereas the model is a 2-8-8-8-2, basically a redecorated Erie Triplex. Given that there was only one prototype locomotive, I can understand MTH taking this shortcut by using the existing Erie tooling since to make new tooling that you probably couldn't use again would be silly.  In any case, the locomotive is superb, it looks, sounds, and runs great as you can see in this True HD 1080p video.
