I need some help to identify that loco.... It is a 280 model but who may have done it ? I am not a great specialist or real steam models from USA and less for old scale model ones, even if I have some, but I really enjoy those old hand made ones, I have many similar pieces from French manufacturers of the same time and it would be a great pleasure for me to know more about it. I have founded on the web that Central Locomotive Works has produced a similar one, I think a scale model but not old and also maybe some others.
It is a two rails O gauge engine. All brass, the weight of the loco is similar to a K4 Scalecraft, so extremely heavy and the look is very similar to a Scalecraft Hudson, typical from the 30-50's pieces. It is not a modern model....
For me that loco may have the look of a New York Central engine, but what kind of tender will match with as it has been lost unfortunately. If someone has a spare tender I would be extremely happy to save this model, it is always sad to keep a piece incomplete.
I would welcome any idea and help, many thanks, Daniel
