1978 run Westside Model Co. imported model built by Micro-Cast Mizuno in Japan. Box shows minimal shelf wear. Boiler weight and window details included. It started out as a standard Westside Craftsman Series #4 as built, J3a. A prior owner modified the locomotive by adding the Scullin disk drivers, roller bearing side rods and smokebox front from a Westside Models Craftsman Series #6 J3a "Super" Hudson. This model is now No. 1 of 1. Very unusual to find a 44 ear old model with such little wear on it.
