Hi all

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 ?
