Rock Island U33B rolls over the grade crossing at Benson. These were the heaviest four axle switchers the Rock ever owned and were intended for pool service with the UP at North Platte. I bought this model second hand in very damaged and tatty condition and with a wide fly wheel less motor. I cleaned it up straightened the hand rails and added more details and then weathered it. I lastly fitted a conventional modern Athearn motor and it has performed perfectly ever since.
