Yes. Just bought one from the C&OHS. It's dead on for the C&O class H-5 original USRAs. It looks really great doubleheaded with my old United C&O H-6, although I need to re-motor the H-6 to get them to run well together. GQ

It's been reliably rumored for over a year, so it's no surprise. It DOES look nice, and someone reported that it ran well. Unfortunately, it's not close to any prototype I model, so I won't be getting one. But it seems a fine new effort.

Just got one the other day - it rocks!
I'd say the 2-6-6-2 is the best Spectrum steamer yet. Maybe even better than the Shay...
Okay, maybe not, but... I really like mine.

I have both the Rivarossi H-8 and the Spectrum H-5. I THINK the H-5 will outpull the H-8 - not prototypical, of course. It's possible to bash the H-5 to be close to the H-4 or H-6, which were far more numerous. Gene ABV61-1043.001.HCB
