Cant seem to find the prototype for a N scale brass engine I picked up, its a Phase 3 GP9 high hood with the roof top(torpedo)tanks and 48" radiator fans.  While it nicely painted in simplified B&O, there is no road number.  Been searching google images, but many shots back then were at low angles so the fans are hard to see.  The ones I do find, on most any roads torpedo boat GP9 are twin 36" fans and not the late 48" style.  Box says is a GP9 passenger unit and not a GP18.  Anybody know who had this style of fans on thier torpedo boats?

Thanks   Mike

The CV units are of interest.  I am originaly from the New Hampshire/Maine area, my birth family still lives in the Stowe, Maine area.  Looks like a winterization hatch, pilot plow, Nathan M3 horn and the long hood high mount bell is needed.  Have to get price from a painter to strip and redetail/repaint the unit.  Thanks guys.   Mike
