GTW 6325 in HO Scale
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, December 27, 2002 3:55 AM
I am looking for a model of this class of locomotive. I assume that the only option is an old brass import. My question is, can anyone direct me to a possible source for this model?
I recall some models advertised in the 1970's, but at that time, I was a youngster mowing lawns for spending money. (most of it went towards Athearn boxcars, and chocolate!).
Any leads would be most appreciated.

We're talking REAL locomotives here. 6325 is in the number series for non-streamlined 4-8-4 with a vanderbilt tender. (I've got a picture of 6319 in front of me.) Looks a lot like CN's 6100-6200 northerns, but a few detail differences.
Sorry, but I've no idea where to get one.

I have not done a point by point comparison but don't overlook the potential of the Bowser metal 4-8-4 as the basis for a "good enough" model of this attractive locomotive.
