This is an auction for a rare Overland Models EMD MP15AC factory painted as Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT, Katy) unit #56.
Overland Models imported a short run of these engines only one time in 2000, and this is #5 of 42 in this pretty and unmistakeable "John Deere" paint scheme.
The engine is museum quality in details, with the tell-tale exhaust muffler on the long hood, a full compliment of grab irons and unique hand rails, lift rings, see through screens, rachet tie down brake, cab strobe and antenna, cab sunshades and all weather windows, full glass, a painted cab interior, terrific underbody and truck piping, and fuel tank overflow and gauges.
The paint is flawless and the striping is very well done (if you have ever tried to paint/decal this scheme yourself, the cab is a real pain to get straight.
The lettering is crisp and even the numberboards have tiny legible 56s in them.
The unit is DC powered, the drive is silent, slow and very smooth. The motor spins with low current draw and the gearing is perfect.
The unit has factory lighting with smaller than grain of rice bulbs, and there are jewels in the class lights.
Don't miss the chance to add this rare MP15AC switcher to your MKT collection.
