Okay, we get it. Though NOT a steam engine, it was, however, one of the first steam era diesel locomotives and is certainly vintage. Best of all, it has been upgraded with a fantastic Northwest Shortline Stanton Drive, directional Front & Rear LED lighting and is an OPERATING TRACK CLEANER which, we bet you could use. How cool is that?
If you have browsed our website you might have noticed our BLOG article titled "How to Re-Motor HO Scale Roundhouse Climax & Box Cab Locos". This reliable, smooth and quiet running, bidirectionally lighted, professionally assembled from kit MRRHQ Custom Roundhouse 2800 MOW Alco Box Cab Diesel Track Cleaner Locomotive w/NWSL Stanton Drive is working and glowing proof of our process.
"Roundhouse Product's flywheel-equipped diesel locomotive kit was patterned after one of the first successful diesel-electrics in the United States, built by Alco in 1924. Powered by a 300 horsepower Ingersoll-Rand 6-cylinder diesel engine, this locomotive weighed 60 tons and could negotiate extremely short radius curves, such as those found in the New Jersey waterfront pier area streets. The Roundhouse Product's model has been designed to operate on standard 18" radius curves, but modelers have been able to make our little diesel "turn on a hat brim". Our customers who are "into" traction will find the Roundhouse diesel is just right for an early day Box Motor style traction locomotive."
