Are these okay as far as good runners? I know they’re really just an USRA 0-6-0 with lead and trailing wheels added, but it looks fairly similar to what I’m looking for and I really want a couple locomotives in the “Prairie” wheel arrangement. They don’t have to be a carbon copy, just something in the general appearance of McCloud Railway 25 and similar locomotives.

My plan would be to do some minor detail to work to spruce them up a bit. I want to model a freelanced rural Class 3 railroad serving a few small towns in Texas and Oklahoma along the Red River Valley. Those small logging 2-6-2s would be perfect for light track and short trains of oil, grain, and livestock.
