Okay, we get it. This IS NOT a steam engine. It is, however, one of the first steam era diesel locomotives and is certainly vintage, definitely a kit and, best of all, IS AN OPERATING TRACK CLEANER which, we bet you could use. How cool is that?
"Roundhouse Product's flywheel-equiped 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."
