1972 Benkei vs the 1998
#1
Comparing the Original version Benkei, 1972 to the more modern release in 1998.

Not too fond of the original power friction drive but I do like the 'clacker' of the original. Love the look of the taller smoke stack but at the expense of not going under a riser?
/pier but that would be easily remedied with the use of custom cut 3/4 inch riser blocks. I love these Western Steamers 😊

The original Benkei came with six yellow plastic spacers designed to raise girders sufficiently to clear the funnel.

This is the leaflet / catalogue that came with it...
