custom 'S' locomotive

An ebay seller named “j1070” used to sell custom S-scale locomotives [like the one shown above] that he made from salvaged American Flyer components and sheet metal. Have any Forum members ever bought one of these models?

I have one, purchased several years ago. Not at home currently so can't share a picture.  As I recall, it is a traditional locomotive, but a 4-6-6-4 configuration with a "super" motor.  It draws a lot of current and will blow a 6 amp fuse but would run on classic AF track.  He also put a table top whistle in the tenders. Fantastic workman ship. When I get home, I can find my records and l get you a name. He made several other special unique configurations. I count myself lucky having one of his configurations. Since I haven't seen any more listings from him in a long time, I assume life issues precluded continuing his contributions to the hobby.
