HO Scale Brass Model Train from Pacific Fast Mail / United

DMI&R Duluth Missabe & Iron Range 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone Steam Locomotive & Tender

SERIAL# 26
  • This model is unpainted and Clean!
  • Very Rare model, only 50 made, rear drivers powered.
  • Powered w/ Open-Frame Motor - Runs Well, but has the typical gear/motor noise on a scale of 1-10, we rate the noise level at 6.
  • Model has Incorrect Spoked Drivers.
  • There is an operating headlight
  • No Back-head/In-Cab Detail
  • The number "26" has been etched under the rear of the cab.
  • The model will be shipped in a Reboxx.
  • Reid notes this model as the pilot model from the John E Long Collection.   However the serial number seems to indicate its the standard (still very rare) 1959 run.  This was likely designated as the pilot model when the Long collection was sold.  We cannot verify that.
  • NOTE:  The steps are missing from the front pilot.
  • This model is from the Reid Dennis Collection. Reid Dennis is a prolific collector of handbuilts, having acquired the Bill Ryan & John Long collection in their entirety, along with many other handbuilt models all over the world. Some of the finest examples still in existence will either come from, or remain in the Reid Dennis collection.
