Here is an oldie for you all, late 1940's USA made brass NW2 is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.


Made by Lindsey first in cast brass and later in zamac after 1950. Single self contained Lindsey power truck, even has a skewed armature, something that other motor builders did not incorperate till many years later. Very heavy being cast brass. This one I have up for trade in the proper thread area. Shell needs a stronger stripper as I am unable to get the 40+ year old paint off completely. She does run well for her age. Enjoy. Mike

Actually could do with something heavy like that as a trailing loco, we have a new member who often gets distracted and forgets to drive his train from the front.
