Default D1600 in Texas

D1600 and COTWs 012.JPG
Sorry for the poor image, my digital camera old and unpredictable. I traded for this piece with a fellow American modeler who bought it at a flea market as a curiousity. I find it absolutely charming, and though it has seen some hard use, and dates to about 1964, or thereabouts, it runs very well. That I live in West Texas makes this a rare find, indeed. You will not see many of these critters in Union Pacific and Burlington Northern-Santa Fe country. As I was to discover, it was manufactured by the French Jouef, and marketed under the "Playcraft" label.

I have one of these in parts... its really suffered over the years, and now doesnt run, since I'd i've lost a key bolt holding the bogie on.

From what I remember of it running, is that all wheels are powered. Very fast and powerful. (happily pulled all my stock in a loop around the layout I had at the time.)

Does your model have the power pickups on the top of the bogie?

For a toy, it has a very decent range of speeds. I've had it apart, but cannot remember for the life of me where the pick ups are. The motor is rather large, which makes me
wonder if it will draw too heavily to make it DCC.
