I have an older brass HOn3 #491 2-8-2
HOn3 is just too small for me these days.
I am planning on selling it to a good home, but...
I cannot find any manufacturer description on it.
I thought it was marked "Japan" and is for sure tender driven.
When I bought it, it came in a 'Tenshodo' box,
but I think it was just put in a box that was handy ?
This model looks like it was painted for a fictional road "Rio Diablo".
Beautiful but a little worn paint.
The doghouse looks different than others I have seen,
with 'Wood sheathing', and roof handrails. Has full coal load.
I did get a LHS to repair a short,
so the engine runs.
Help on identifying the manufacturer and age ?
