I have just recently aquired a early (1950's version ) Tenshodo model # 126 and T-126 4884 of the memorable 4002 Union Pacific Big Boy series. My question is, is there any manuals or information about the function of the Engine. The model train show where I purchased this spectacular piece was tested by a vendor there, applied power to the engine which satified my interest in knowing that it will run and there was audiable sound as from a speaker sound of a horn. The question is does anyone know of a manual and what features this engine can perform? Old Engines only die when hope is left to frustration and failure to research. Your assistence would be much appreceated.

Brass locomotives of this vintage did not come with manuals or sound. The sound module would have been added by a previous owner, as to type/manufacturer you will have to open up the loco to see what's inside.

...funny you mention that about no manuals, I had pondered that myself, but I am a newbie regarding this antique, it was worth asking anyway. I suppose it is a matter of a track set up and the right controller and just letten er rip to see what happens, as I had mentioned a vendor at the show where I got it from had a bench test track set up and applied some throttle to it, and both sets of drivers responded, I was pleased by that and there was a sound like a horn when the operator engage a button on the controller but I have to admit I was watching the drivers turn and not watching his hands on the transformer. Thanks for your insight!
