The motor does indeed work, and it seems the problem was more to foreign objects/debris than zinc pest.

I did some more examinations of my new 0-4-0 and it almost seems like the engine was in water at one time, but only part of it. The motor does work nicely, (it took some time for the brushes to re-seat after cleaning), and I see no signs of zinc pest, just some surface corrosion that did not leave any pits or scars, which are some early signs of zinc pest.

The only reason that I was curious as to if it is possible to determine make is for the purposes of my North American Locomotive inventory. I will just list this one as being from Kemtron for inventory purposes.

Does anybody have kadee 713 couplers installed on 0-4-0? Or is it better to use any other type of couplers?

I have Micro-Trains N scale installed on mine. A 1023 on the front and a 1015 on the rear.

Will post photos tomorrow.

Nice efforts so far. If anyone wants a shell for this loco for free (cost of postage) drop me a note here. I have one lying around that I will never use. John

Gone, to the lowest bidder! Could be adapted to others, I've seen photos of similar LV and CNJ locos on the NJ waterfront...maybe even San Francisco? John
