So I recently acquired my first model train in years and I was wanting something that I could start a model railroad with. I got a Pennsy A5 0-4-0. Was it a good choice? Also, I am unsure as to which brand it is (I just bought the train. It was slightly used so it did not come in its case).

Not sure of the maker. It is a good engine for short freight trains and yard switching. It looks like it has horn & hook type couplers, which may need to be changed depending on what type of cars you use. I have a mixture, but mainly use kadee type knuckle couplers. Let us know how your layout is progressing.
