3rd Rail CB&Q O5A # 5629
Sunset produced these back in 2003, and I've always wanted one. Well, I finally found one and wasted no time to modify it for 40's time frame. Sunset has always favored the 50 and 60's detailing in all of their O5 offerings; including their upcoming HO versions. Such versions, while popular, are not correct for 40's passenger trains. In my opinion, the 40's detailing is a more desirable look that represents the moment in which these engines where the indisputable queens of the rails. At any rate, this is a beautiful model, one that shows almost no aging despite it's 15 year life. Just like my Q F3's, this girl won't be demoted to freight.
