HOn30 galloping goose ?

I found this at an estate sale and picked it up wondering what it was. It is made in Japan with a motor on top of the rear drive wheels that is connected by meshing gears. Iíve tried finding info on this but have come up with nothing. Itís brand new but no box , dang it. But is cool looking. Iíve tested it but itís really noisy as probably because itís been sitting for some time. I was wondering if anybody had any info on this piece. The manufacturer is Sugiama Seisakusho. The bottom is brass but the body is plastic. Any if would be appreciated pics included

ViperJim, congratulations on your purchase of a "Galloping Goose" railcar, one of seven built by Rio Grande and Southern for delivering mail and other light loads.

The company manufactures high-quality brass trains as a sideline. However, I found this link to their Galloping Goose.

Thank you for the info but mine I believe is HOn30 as it is huge compared to my n scale PA1 but runs on n scale track. That's why I'm thinking it is n 30. That's what I'm trying to find info but can't find anything on the company except make small armatures when I do a search for the name.
