AHM 5072D 2-4-0 W&ARR J.W. Bowker Locomotive

The Baldwin 2-4-0 J.W. Bowker Locomotive has a long and storied history. This AHM5072D 2-4-0 W&ARR J.W. Bowker Locomotive was one of three road names offered by AHM in 1973. Built for AHM by Rivarossi in Italy, though the V&T "Bowker" is far and away the most famous of the three versions, all three are very collectible. Why is this Bowker "Super" you ask? To make this AHM 5072D 2-4-0 W&ARR J.W. Bowker Locomotive even more special I've added my MRRHQ Custom AcuGlow working headlamp with clear lens.

Also, for those DCC Operators, this series of Bowkers w/the motor-in-cab are the only Bowkers that are, with DCC capable. (See Below) Stop gawking and start Bowking!

* The motor, one set of drive wheels and the Draw-bar are not isolated from the frame. This requires modification and replacing the stock Tender wheels w/pickup wheels. As a side benefit this also adds extended pickup "reach" for fewer stalls.
