Anyone aware of possible mfgr. of this 26" ep4 or 5. Set up for outside 3rd rail (wheels not insulated). Sides/top appear to be brass construction with ends possibly bronze. Has old look to it. Never seen a drive train with what appears to be chain tensioners. Gearbox appears to be fabricated. Did not come with motors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance
Are the pics not showing up?
No photos visible to me.
I believe the engine is a Y-1. This is the engine UP bought when GN dropped the electrics, and made it into the turbine unit for the coal turbine.
That is it. Question becomes who made this kit from back in the day?
Might have been scratch built?
What a fabulous old model, quite a find, assume it came to you missing it's end B-trucks? Are there any letters or die marks visible on the inside of the car body casting(s)?
I am aware of a cast bronze EP-4 car body castings made in the late forties for the Parmalee & Sturgis EP-3 chassis, however this is quite different. Yea , verily awesome.
