A fantastic example, professionally built, painted and weathered from the finely detailed etched brass kit produced by Connoisseur Models.

This particular loco represents a WW2 engine which hauled a long fleet of conflate carrying American tanks. The loco also hauled the armoured wartime coach which carried General Dwight D. Eisenhower when he was on his way to supervise the 1944 invasion preparations of 1944.
