Entertaining!

Drive LOOKS like an old GM Vertical Motor NW2, taken apart, newer gearbox, belt drive, and field wound motor laid on top. Why field wound? Rectumfrier! Selenium plate, no less.
Gotta be a special custom at $115.56 + $11.99.

I am particularly enamoured of the flat plate end railings in high-visibility orange, the wide swing couplers, and the missing front pilot step. The front two "stacks" almost at first glance appear to be microphone jacks, but what do I know, right?
The green masking tape wrapped around the inside of the cab windows is a nice privacy touch, too.

Stunning.

You've posted a lot worse than this one.......

True! Which is why I titled this one "Entertaining!" Price? No way, but somebody will, in fact, step up and buy it for the good of the hobby.

The drive is of interest, like it has another plate on the outside to hold the spur gears in place.

Yes, intriguing......but more than I need to spend for entertainment.
