In the "ready-to-run" category, this PMR's Solar Engine #12 has the most character, Having more power than the Solar #10 and employing an on board water pump, opens up a whole world of job ideas to have it do. In the meantime, just running fascinates all the spectators! If I were going to own just one Solar engine, this would be the one.
