Available lettered for the NYC, US Steel, or undecorated. The model in the photo shows the basic kit built, but a new roof was built for it to house the flashing yellow light. Many details were added to enhance its overall looks. Ed wrote an article in the February 2010 issue of The Dispatch titled "Detailing a Putt Trains Diesel Switcher", the subject of which was this model.

44-ton. These models were built by Ajin Precision of Korea, and imported by Overland Models for River Raisin Models. It is a ready-to-run brass model of a 1940 through 1956 44-ton industrial diesel switcher. The model was sold as shown in the photo (gray primer paint applied). In the April 1998 issue of the S/Sn3 Modeling Guide magazine is an article on how to install Kadee 802 S-scale couplers onto this engine.

44-ton. The body is made out of plastic, and the mechanism uses a modified Athearn drive system. The kit was originally made in three versions: 4-wheel-drive, steel chassis; 8-wheel-drive, RTR brass chassis; DC, hi-rail. Photo #2 shows Ed's unpainted model (he said many details still need to be added to complete his model). General Electric manufactured about 350 of these engines, which were capable of pulling 5 or 6 cars.

Product Type:Craftsman Kit
Plymouth 30-ton gas or diesel industrial switcher made in the 1950s. It is of brass construction and must have been a kit of etched parts that were formed only needing to be soldered together. Three soft metal castings for the headlight, stack, and the sandbox were included. The drive is a Pittman motor mounted on top of the frame. The drive threw spur gears down to a worm shaft. Electrical pickup is by wipers on top of the insulated drivers. A bit crude by present day standards.
