To Foob or not to Foob….

I have had a Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0 since the first run, and was at one point going to make it a Pacific Coast Railway loco. The Pacific Electric would lease steamers all the time from their parent road, the Southern Pacific. The PE also owned a handful of 0-6-0’s, and these were the only Pacific Electric lettered steam locos. I decided today that needed to be changed.

The real 2716 had a Vanderbilt tender.

Southern Pacific C8 2-8-0 leased and relettered into a Pacific Electric loco. The PE never lettered a 2-8-0.
