Body Style Information: This is an early (1960s) model from Arnold. It features pretty good detail in the molding and exceptional (for 1967 or so) quality printing. The blackened metal wheels, while not being low-profile are not excessively flanged and may even run OK on Code 55 track. Unfortunately the trucks are of the 'clip-on' variety and may prove difficult to swap out for MTL trucks. Some of these models come with factory coal loads which are adequate for today and quite impressive for the 1960s. These loads are easy to remove if you wish to replace them with something better.
