Product Features and Details
Model: Each REI Military locomotive is professionally hand-painted and thus highly unique. The locomotives are professionally painted in authentic weathered patterns, and each one is disassembled, masked, and airbrushed before being reassembled for the final touches. You'll find such features as carefully replicated rusty seams and pistons, leaking calcium deposit, grime, dirt and more. Models also feature painted wheels and underframes, weathered boilers and prototypical lettering. For this REI Model, we used a Fleischmann BR 53.3. The Fleischmann BR 53 is a detailed model which features prototypical "daylight" between boiler and chassis, finely detailed Heusinger valve gear, brake shoes between the wheels and much more. The model also has cast metal chassis, NEN 651 DCC , and the original Fleischmann round motor. Model runs extremely smooth as with all Fleischmann locomotives. This is a unique model that will make a great addition to any collection.
