HO Brass - CB&Q Burlington Route M4a 2-10-4 Elesco FWH Version #6315. MINT CIL 2132.1
You are looking at a very well done model by Challenger Imports in 1994. I like to think models built by Samhongsa post 1990 are of the utmost quality and precision. Take a look at this model to see what you think. There do appear to be a few minor paint chips around the driver tire. However, this is normal for models by Samhongsa of this era. Thankfully, they used engine black on the wheels so fixing this is extremely simple.
The model runs extremely smoothly.
Great Backhead detail
Perfect paint minus the few driver tire abrasions.
This is a perfect example of a brute of a locomotive. This model is massive and has the weight to boot!
