Positively reviewed by Randolph Brown and Tony Koester in the December 1977 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman (a few criticisms are listed there). PFM worked with Tomalco to import this model. It represents a model in the last years of these Consolidations. This was the very first brass Sn3 locomotive. 500 unpainted models were manufactured by Nakamura of Japan. Another run of 75 models was done in 1981. The model in the photo has been painted and weathered.
