Review of HP catalog info shows the following: The 460 was introduced and first appears in the 1959 catalog (red cover with 1959 on front). The model featured brass construction and a 7 pole DC motor made by Romford in England. The 1961 catalog (identical to the 1959 catalog with the addition of a small piece of paper stapled to the last page noting the 1961 additions) states that the 10 wheeler is temporarily out of production.

Some file notes I have from John Harmon show that the punch die used to produce the brass skirting and catwalk assembly was broken by HP in 1959, which limited the number of units produced by HP. Harmon estimates a total of approximately 50 were produced. The brass 460 and associated 4700 brass tender are indeed rare models. :thumbup:

Wow, Richard, there is a very interesting article by Larry Archer in this issue.

Do you know something more about Larry Archer and his layout? Is he still alive? Does he still model in TT or any other scales?..
