I THINK I put that up a while back. Five bucks at the door for "curiosity" purposes.
One wonders (aloud) where Trainz gets this shXt.
There is NO redeeming social value to this. Unless you MUST have that metal chain drive, vertical motor power truck.
Don't even know it it's a field wound motor with a rectumfrier or a permag.
I suppose one could salvage couplers and all those brass screws holding it together, right?

Stacks look like those knobs on the end of your window blind cords. Radiator looks like window screen.
But it's got windscreen wipers!

Are those traction pilot beams with radial coupler slots?

It looks like a caricature of an SW locomotive! Where they find this stuff is a mystery as deep as why they try to sell it! Hey, an old used car salesman told me "for every seat, there’s an *** out there somewhere"!

It reminds me of the old American Flyer Alcos which always looked to be loo long and/or too narrow, like if you changed one dimension or the other it would look correct. In the one image you can see dings and scrapes under the new paint. If AF ever did that style of switcher, that may be the origin of this attempt to dislodge $$$$$ from some poor Schmuck.

Like some of the old New York Central crummies. I never could "get with" their look.

You or someone else did. Proportions on it are........."odd".

Looks like maybe the Hawk or Walthers wood and cardboard switcher but with some freight car trucks under it lol. I might have one even uglier than that!
