Actually, it is a class MT-4 mountain of Southern Pacific. They were used in both passenger and freight operations well into the 50's.

Yes, that is correct on the MT-4. They were like the "geeps" of old for SP....the precurser to the GS types... I wish they'd get that one out..would look great on Donner! Any word on a release??

Thanks,
Galen

Not at this time. Larry Goss is the builder of that one and he has been rather difficult to get ahold of. Last we heard he was sending it a few months ago, but we have not been able to get ahold of him since....frustrating.
