HO Brass - Empire Midland H-3 2-8-0 #1173 Pro Painted EARLY GOLD LETTERING
Here's an opportunity for the Pennsylvania Railroad Operators and Collectors. This is a very rare example of an early PRR H-3 class 2-8-0. 
This model has been extensively rebuilt, professionally painted, and in fact, it even runs pretty well! Something highly unusual for models imported by Empire Midland.
Looking ready for anything, this mighty fine 2-8-0 will make an excellent addition to your pike. 
  • A seemingly rebuilt model with a phenomenal paint job. Look at the photos for yourself. 
  • Coal Load installed with a coal shovel.
  • Nice Backhead
  • Operates with normal operating noise
  • Original box included (Missing label... Normal on Empire Midland Models)

I have priced this model according to the rarity and the professional paint job. Take a look on the internet. The H-3 (with the belpaire firebox) rarely ever comes up. I've only seen 2 that have ever been for sale on the internet. 

I've included a video that briefly shows this model as it awaited photos.
