Model Information: Rocky Mountain Model produced this engine for a brief period in the early 1970s. They adopted a Fleishmann mechanism and kept the Fleishmann tender, but created a new locomotive body. The tender contains the motor and the locomotive freewheels. Believe it or not, the tender trucks do not swivel. I guess Fleishmann figured that the tender length was so sort that it’d negotiate curves just fine.
Road Name History:Some items are designed to have their owner add whatever company marking they choose, usually in the form of decals or dry-transfers. These items are painted in a generic prototypical fashion but with all company affiliation deliberately left off.
Brand/Importer Information:In business for only a brief while in the early 1970s, Rocky Mountain Model was at P.O. Box 175 in Aspen, CO. And yes the official name of the business had no 'S' at the end of the word 'Model' - so no, this is not a typo. It’s thought that they produced only one model.
