Manufacturer:Hoquat Hobbies
Category:Electric, Steeplecab
Road Name:(undecorated)
Model Introduced:1988
Product Type:Craftsman Kit
This General Electric steeplecab electric locomotive model kit includes a resin body, odd-looking resin sideframes, but no power and no pole or pantograph. Dick added an old Walthers O-scale "short" pantograph, S Scale Loco & Supply Reading tender truck sideframes, an Athearn HO-scale SW-7 powered chassis, and Kadee HO-scale couplers. Extra details (headlights, bell, horns, railings, etc.) are from various sources. The model has been painted and lettered by Dick for his private railroad New York, Westchester & Boston, road number 801. He wrote an article about its construction in the June 1997 issue of the S/Sn3 Modeling Guide magazine.
