Description
Accucraft AC78-520 
This 1:20.3 model is based on a 3-foot gauge 18 Ton Plymouth built in 1927 as construction number 2522, The original prototype was built as gas powered in wheel arrangement 2-4-2, while its pilot and trailing truck wheels were removed to be a more generic Plymouth 0-4-0 locomotive with model number and style of HLC type 3.

 

The locomotive was first delivered to Colfax, California to the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railway. As new, the locomotive was rejected by the railroad after a few months because it kept derailing on the tight curves of Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad (or ‘Never Come Never Go’ as the locals called it).

 

In 1930, Plymouth Diesel Switcher was then sold to Yellow Ping Mining Company in Jean, Nevafa. It next shows up operating on Metropolitan Waster District at White Water, California near Palm Springs owned by contractor L.E. Dixon. It was sold again to Hyman-Michaels who in turn sold it to the Pacific Coast Railway in 1936 at San Louis Obispo, California.

 

In 1942, the locomotive traveled to Aron Feher Company in Los Andeles. This Plymouth Diesel Switcher disappears at the same location not long after, as many believe that it must have be scrapped.

?

These Plymouth style locomotives were widely used all over the world, and are still used today at many tourist railways and on construction projects that need a transport system.

?

Your model is a highly detailed model of the prototype. It is made of brass and stainless steel and will give years of service. The model has a powerful motor and id driven through a gearbox and runs smoothly and quietly.
