Product Type:Brass Kit

The kit had a formed brass frame, brass boiler and cab, with cast-resin steam chest, firebox, smoke box, and tender. It was a "spartan" kit so the owner was to detail it with S Scale Locomotive & Supply parts. The problem with this engine's design was that it used steel tires on plastic spoke drivers with "D" end axles. Over time the axles wore larger holes in the plastic and the drivers became loose and "wobbly". The mechanism was then prone to locking up because the drivers were no longer properly quartered.

Road Name:Chicago Great Western (CGW)
Model Introduced:1937
Product Type:Wood & Cardboard Kit
Finishunpainted
These early kits were composed of wood turnings for the boiler, and embossed card stock for the cab and tender. The operating model did not come with a motor, but this model is powered by a Pittman motor. The tender trucks are C-D trucks of metal casting with turned steel wheels for electrical pickup. The tender itself is a wood box with an embossed paper wrapper glued around it. More historical info about these models is available in the February 1992 issue of the 3/16 "S"cale Railroading magazine.
