HOn3 Brass ~ Precision Scale 2-8-0 C-16 #268 D&RGW, FP

This lot contains a Precision Scale Company C-16, factory painted in the bumblebee paint scheme for #268. I acquired this loco a number of years ago at an estate sale. It had a number of minor issues, most of which have no affect on its running condition or looks. The engine was missing its lead truck and the drawbar. I installed a MDC lead truck which works well. I had some difficulty with the drawbar so I used a plastic drawbar and made a connecting wire from the motor lead that inserts on the tender drawbar attachment. It works very well and can be easily removed. If you so desire, you should be able to get original replacement parts from PSC. The tender is missing a piece of the bolster which can not be seen unless you turn the tender over and it does not affect the pickup or the way the truck rides. There is also a small hole drilled on the inside of the tender well, presumably for running wires to a decoder. There is a kadee 714 coupler mounted on the tender. Despite a few imperfections as described, this engine runs great and looks great. The box and foam are in excellent condition however the top piece of foam is missing. A lot of great detail on this fine piece of Colorado Narrow Gauge. Thanks for looking and feel free to ask questions.
