Searched, and even partially disassembled the 4-4-2 but can not find any manufacturer mark on the locomotive or tender. It came with a set of Chicago and Northwestern passenger cars, which I believe were made by Roundhouse. But the loco seems like a different style, even though the decals are also Chicago and Northwestern. Any ideas? The engineer in the cab is different, for one thing...

If you look at the leading truck you'll see journal points on the axles. You were supposed to file those flat according to the kit instructions. They were good runners if you did everything like they told you, and with those Zamac boilers they could pull the plaster off the wall! is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
