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 drives 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. The label shown in Photo #3 was of the box that Michael Martin's model arrived in, and it mentions "Super Scale". Current speculation is that maybe at some point in time Super Scale Models bought the Dayton Model Products product line.
