Ken Kidder GP7

Manufacturer:Ken Kidder
Road Name:New York Central (NYC)
Product Type:Brass
Truly a rarity. Ken Kidder, erstwhile importer of O- and HO-scale traction models, imported three copies of a brass S-scale EMD GP-7, superstructure only, in the late 1940s. The four original fan grids on this model were brass furniture tacks! Owner Dick Karnes re-detailed the body to resemble a NYC GP-18, and married it to a Port Able Lines (later Cascade Hobby Products) powered GP-7 chassis. Truck sideframes are Enhorning Blombergs. Decals are Microscale. MV lenses, HO Kadee couplers.
