The photo posted just fine. :ok_hand:

Thank Joe. The new website makes it much easier as I have learned.

I’m interested. I’m a longtime reader on the forums but recently had my membership approved. I have another one of these (D&RGW), and it runs well. Let me know if it is available and thank you.

Matt, spoken for. If the buyer reconsiders, I’ll contact you.

Not in any way, meaning to “Nit-Pick”, but…
That type of locomotive, with the cab in the centre, is usually referred to as a “Centre Cab” locomotive…although the Aristo model has no real prototype; it is a nice looking loco. Aristo simply used two of their Alco RS3 short hoods, and the cab, and stuck them on a short frame with a pair of believable trucks. I never was able to purchase one, before they ceased to produce them.

You are correct Fred. They should be called Center Cab locomotives. I purchase one thinking I would use it in a rail yard setting, but got tired of crawling around on the ground and build an elevated layout, with no provisions for a switching yard, hence for sale to someone who might have fun with it.


i am no expert on center cab locos at all. But I thought that one looked “familiar”. I wasn’t sure why, then you mention the aristo RS3 and it made sense. I can see it.

Fred is always correct, just ask him.
