This classic Kato made N scale diesel was purchased back in the late 1980s for a San Francisco Bay Area model railroad club that I belonged to. We worked on a fabulous N scale railroad for several years, but my career required moving out of the area before this locomotive ever got to do work on the scale layout. Exterior has been air brush weathered. The layout was to replicate the Southern Pacific trains in the area from the 50s through the 70s. No original box, but will be packed well.
