    I picked this up as it is the same I type of locomotive I rode in. Well the one I rode in was much larger. Anyway these were high quality locomotives in the 70s. Much more detail than the Tyco models. Plus they had flywheel motors which caused it to move like a real locomotive. It would start slowly and roll to a stop. Unlike others that would stop as soon as the power was cut.
    This GP-9 is in the Black Widow paint scheme.
    Note this is HO Gauge aka 1/87th scale.
