Front End Friday, I made on time for this Friday....🤣
I have another piece of vintage power that I had bought after gaining some experience on the 4x8 with the ATSF 5628 😂
An AHM, (Rivarossi) made in Italy product. The end piece ID on the box is long gone. I was hoping somebody could tell me what this thing is. I believe it to be an Alco model of something, but I couldn't find the exact model.
We'll start at the front, move our way around it. This is the first time this thing has been out of the box in decades! (5 of them)
Look at the foam disease on this thing! o_O It was almost all dissolved in the box.

That’s a scary one but I really like it thanks for sharing

Go make something!
Here's the D unit of an ABBA set of NP F7s I paid too much for last week. I forgot for a moment I model the BN in 1995. Oops.

It looks like it needs some MU hoses and grab irons on the nose and cab roof. It also needs lift rings, an antenna and a little MU door to viewer's left of the upper light. ESU Sound too?
