Maxi,the plow didn`t come with it and unknown if the correct pilot is on the loco as per the 1;1 455,if the switcher pilot has been fitted as an aftermarket item I don`t mind at all,if I found a plow do you know if the item would suit either pilot?Cylinder and valve chest covers are not missing but they are different, plain discs, on the green boiler jacket version ( I don't have the "flying" logo version). I have both RGS and green boiler. What does intrigue me is my 455 RGS has the snow plough fitted up front and the one you have there has the "switcher" pilot. Did they make both versions in the RGS livery ?
There are quite a few detail differences between the versions that Bachmann made of the K-27. Not just at the front but also most noticeably the cabs and roofs. They are not just "cut and paste" livery jobs. My green boiler has the habit of punching out its left side valve chest cover periodically. Ended up bonding it on I got so fed up checking all around the 3 foot after running it. Max
As for people dropping off perches,it may be the only way to get one soon,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and I don`t plan on going yet!!!!!!
