|Years of collecting
brass models has resulted in some duplicates and models that will
just never see the light of day. Rather than taking up shelf space

to their collection. So I am offering several great Heavy Electric
HO Scale models for sale.
models will be offered on a “first come” basis
for sale. This is not an auction.

R-1 Importer – Alpha Models, this model was bought
from a dealer and I believe it was new when purchased. Model has
been test-run only while in my collection. Runs like a Swiss watch

on the frame have been touched-up. Pantographs have been replaced,
originals were very weak and easily broken. Replacements fit the
original pads with very little modifications. These units will operate
raised under wire, The original pantographs would not operate properly
so they were replaced. The model has window glazing and LED (warm
white) directional headlight with lens and Kadee couplers. Email
for additional photos.
