Western Pacific Freight
This is my first Showcase Line train from S-Helper Services.
#00446 Western Pacific SW-1 Switch Engine made from 2000 to 2006.
The SHS engines run extremely smoothely and quietly when you're used to the 1950s Gilbert engines!
Notice the detailing, down to the people inside the cab.

The detail and precision scaling on these S-Helper cars really are far superior to anything that Gilbert or Lionel ever made.  But they're also a lot more delicate.  The Gilbert cars were designed as toys to be played with by young boys.  The S-Helper cars clearly are not.
