As has been mentioned elsewhere:

The pilots are wrong, the lead trucks are wrong, the drive trucks are wrong; it is the wrong gauge, it has the wrong pantographs, it has the wrong side screening. The side doors are in the wrong place, it has side mounted ladders that shouldn't be there, the end grabs are not correct, and the MU connections are in the wrong place.

Other than that, I'm sure it'll be a good model... :-D

Wonder where they got their info, news to me that NYC had them??? :wink: They would look good in lightning stripes though. Maybe they mean they ran over the NYC..

Thank you for correcting me!


Even with all its shortcomings, it could be a decent addition to am HO scale New Haven roster... or a good start for a kitbash!

Okay then, it's a horrible model, it's disgustingly inaccurate for anything New Haven, and I hope it doesn't appear on anyone's American roster.
