I found a nice MTH DL&W Fairbanks Morse H-24-66 Trainmaster recently. It is a PS2/3v engine. Nice detail and great paint work.

The real ones saw use in both freight and passenger service. The Lackawanna had twelve of them and they lived on into the EL era.

Interesting engines, as they had opposed piston prime movers. No cylinder heads and two crank shafts. Similar FM designed/built engines were used in US Navy diesel submarines right up into the 1990’s.

Only one Trainmaster is in existence now. It is a Canadian version built by the Canadian Locomotive Company under license from FM. It was one of twenty used by the Canadian Pacific Railway...
