HOn3 Brass - PFM United Uintah 2-6-6-2t Colorado Narrow Gauge - Very Little Tarnish
This is a really gorgeous example of a unique prototype. These engines, numbers 50 and 51, operated in the Western Colorado area. The Uintah line was a little over 60 miles long. Yet these engines navigated some of the sharpest trackage and steepest grades for any articulated engine in the world.
This model was imported by Pacific Fast Mail in 1978 and was built by Atlas/United of Japan. This was one of the late run models done featuring a full backhead detail, which I've tried to photograph for you all.
The model runs well with an original Can Motor and enclosed gearboxes. The box is in great shape and includes the parts bag. It is missing the display plate.
After inspecting the model, the only issue I found is a missing handrail on the articulated deck. This is visible in photo 6. It'd be an easy fix but it is not for me.
