Manufactured by Samhongsa of Korea. Produced in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the S Gaugian magazine. Includes opening doors, front-end marker lights, coupler and uncoupler lift bars, and handrails. Available with either scale or hi-rail wheels. The model is a scale 59'-4" long, 9'-10" wide, and 13'-6" high, which seems to be fairly accurate. Only the front truck is powered. Two wheels on each truck pick up power from the rails. The car weighs 17 ounces, and can pull 2 ounces. Therefore, weight will need to be added if you plan to pull anything with this engine, unless the car is light and/or the layout is flat. Shown in the original brass state, on Trevor's layout. Be sure to visit Trevor's blog, where he has detailed how he prepared and painted the engine. The three-minute video shows his engine with sound. Jim Hediger reviewed this engine in the February 1987 issue of Model Railroader magazine, where he stated that "This model is one of the best-performing imports I have ever reviewed."
