'tis the season for 830s

844 is going to Steamranger, thanks to a donation by onerail.

If PRR were lucky enough to get both an 830 & NJ, would these be able to MU?  Would the NJ also be able to MU with the NT?  Cheers

Just out of interest are these two locos being hired off SETS?  Also does SETS own an 85 class? Cheers
