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.
