Yep, adding just a few details and some paint really makes a difference with them.

For those that are curious, the differences between the HP 4-8-2 and the HP 2-8-2 are more than just having a 4 wheeled versus a 2 wheeled leading wheel set.

The firebox and frame are of different lengths as well. The boiler portion itself is roughly the same between the two.

Both engines are lined up at the juncture between the firebox and boiler:

I have a question to see the Rio Grande. Wheels are original HP?
I say this because, the former company of Northern Spain, had these since 1917 and RENFE since 1941, I would like to have one as the Rio Grande. :boohoo:

Those are original HP wheels. HP had two types of wheels that were used in their steam engines. The first (and more common) was the solid cast box-pok drivers, like on my husband's HP Mikado. Some engines only had the box-pok drivers available. The other type was the lost-wax spoked drivers, which were not as common, although it is easy to find some models (such as the 4-8-2 and 2-8-2) with either type. In fact we have a 4-8-2 with each type, spoked and box-pok.

Do You know of any other place where I can find them, both 2-8-2 and 4-8-2?

Those models are rather infrequently sold, from what we have noticed, is that since we started in TT scale around 5 years ago, we have figured that HP 2-8-2s and 4-8-2s seem to appear up for sale on eBay around 4 or 5 per year on average.

There are places that sell TT scale wheelsets and frames to use them with, which would be cheaper to get as well as easier to get.
