This has been in a junk box for about two years. The last train show I found a chasis for a parts switch. Technically the new piece was whole and I could of swiched shells but I was nostalgic.




Yes, I had to make a roof. I had to switch out the end cap and two axles.



These are the new pieces/parts.




I used E bay to ID the engine.

I am sure the car was an AHM with three triangles. Later versions may be owned by someone else. Interesting that you recognise it. It is a good engine.
I will follow up with more pictures. Done.

Post pictures of yours too. I would like to see the bottom logo on the frame.

There is 2 brackets that must gently pried and then the trucks will come out. Just lubed 'em real good and clean everything and they run OK. Just too light for me to run and the pickup or lack of doesn't help any. Still, a nice model. I had a old GP18 that had the blinking light feature. Wish I kept it!

It is posts 6 I lost it when posting and had to submit and edit. Well You know I had to look again. It wasn;t up long you must be a fast reader.:)

So Two things hold it up. The bottom is screwed on and a clip holds the top.
