Acme seems to be the catch-all name now, :roll: :roll: :roll:

Like "custom" was last year - a consignment tag. That's a guess, not a fact.

So Acme is NOT a manufacturer I never heard of!? I was sort of kidding, thinking it was a funny name (that I thought only made dynamite or safes!) for a train manufacturer but I did think it was real. Oh well another dream shattered!!

Labeling comedy aside, is this some variation on the JNR box cab IMP imported? It seems to lasck the evenly spaced square windows with the round corners that typify most of those IMP box cabs. Kind of cool looking anyway, in a B&M/New Haven-ish manner.

Yes. One of the many different boxcab electrics that were imported by IMP - there's at least 2 of this sort listed right now.
