Please move the posts about RS-3 here from Wishlist. Thanks.

I see the Pennsy has a different fuel tank. More like the TT model. Interesting. All the pictures I looked at showed the fuel tank like in the picture I have of the Reading engine.


Bernd, the the fuel tank has been changed since.
New fuel tank is available from Michael - Art&Detail

Also note the height of the round radiator. The one thing I find funny about the TT model is the signal lines coming out of the multiple unit plug stands.


Not a big deal. It seems to be correct for NH units.

But this really doesn't matter. The signal lines are something you glue on the model yourself. Someone either glued them too high or it was for another prototype.

There are two fuel tanks at the kit. See the first posting. A big speaker fits only in one fuel tank model.

The RS-3 in primer look is a modified model for UP. I think, it should look like a RS-2.

I know. Therefore is my RS-3 a C&NW. But one buyer wanted the RS-3 in UP color. Christian Kuehr did make some adaptations before he painted it.

No, it is CNW 1552. :o You should play bingo or lottery. :grin:

The Signal hoses are at the right place. I haven't installed the covers at the headlights. But they are components of the kit.

Somewhere I have a short video clip from my first cab ride, which was in an Alco RS-3, at the Naugatuck Railroad. When I find it, it will go on this thread, as you can hear the prime mover in use.

Look at where the signal hoses are. The old saying must be true. "There is a prototype for everything". Not quite what's on the model but close enough. Talk about a red face. :oops:

Bernd


I wonder if they did it that way for a reason, like snow? If this was an original D&H unit maybe they got sick of trying to clear or thaw everything if they were getting beat up with some of that wonderful Upstate NY white stuff?

Found it!

The video quality is not as good as today's stuff, just keep in mind that this video clip is over a decade old.
