Also produced as road numbers 315, 316, and 319. Model Railroader magazine did a product review of these engines in their August 1985 issue. The reviewer (Jim Hediger) mentioned the models have "a fineness of detail that is remarkable". The models dimensions matched the prototype's. The models are made of etched and formed brass with lost-wax detail castings and brass wire piping. All of the drivers are sprung, with the middle two having no flanges. They were tested at running at 2 smph at 2.6 volts, up to 27 smph at 12 volts. The model, with tender, weighs 17 ounces, can handle down to a 24-inch radius curve, and can pull 3 ounces without slipping (about 40 free-rolling cars). They are very smooth runners. Another product review was done in the May issue of the 1985 Model Railroading magazine. The original box included enginemen, coupler draft-gear boxes, backup light, and thinfilm decals. The models arrived unpainted, as shown in Photo #2. Manufactured by Samhongsa, Seoul, Korea. Another run was done in 2005 by Boo-Rim, Seoul, Korea.

These have a Maxon "Amax" motor. #40 (modeled as it was in 1940), #41 (modeled as it was in 1941), and #341 (modeled as it was in 1939) were advertised by P-B-L in the October 1988 issue of Model Railroader magazine. Photo #2 shows the original unpainted model. Both this run and the other one done in 2001 were manufactured by Samhongsa, Seoul, Korea. The 2001 run was also available as factory-painted, and as "foreground" model. Prototype info: #340 started its career as #400. It was sold by the D&RGW to Knotts Berry Farm in 1952, where it is still preserved.

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.
