William Flatt Electric, Steeplecab

Manufacturer:William Flatt
Category:Electric, Steeplecab
Product Type:Brass
This craftsman-style kit is a Class B General Electric steeplecab electric locomotive. Built by Dick. It came as a set of flat photo-etched brass body components plus an assortment of brass shapes and wire, a trolley pole, and white metal traction sideframes. This model was assembled mostly per the instructions, but with road service pilots rather than the footboard pilots included in the kit. It is furnished with an American Models GG1 pantograph instead of the trolley pole. Truck sideframes are Baldwin drop-equalized, originally intended for O-scale traction models. Chassis power is not included in the kit, so Dick used two NorthWest Short Line S-scale Stanton drives.
