The die to make the 2-6-0 was created by reworking the 2-4-4T die. This was completed by the new owners of Rex Engineering, S&P Distributors. The model is a freelanced one, with a PRR-style cab, Baldwin domes, and Burlington-style headlight. The PRR Belpaire conversion kit was separately available from Rex. The closest prototype match is the Green Bay & Western locomotive as it matches that engine's size and style. The kit consists primarily of high-pressure zamac castings, steel- or brass-tired drive wheels, a Pittman DC-71 open-frame motor, and plastic dummy couplers. The model shown in the photo was built and heavily modified by Dick Karnes. It has had its piston-valve steam chest, spoked pilot, PRR-style cab, and standard tender replaced, respectively, with a Kemtron slide-valve steam chest, Rex footboard pilot, S Scale Locomotive & Supply USRA cab, and a converted and detailed American Flyer 0-8-0 clear-vision tender. Additionally, Microscale decals and HO-scale Kadee couplers were installed. The product was reviewed in the October 1963 S Gauge Herald. The NASG's Library has the kit's instruction booklet available. Putt Trains re-introduced the model in 2003 both in ready-to-run and kit form.
