Accucraft 1:20.3 Scale - Rio Grande Southern Motor No2 the "Galloping Goose"
In the 1930’s, Colorado’s famous Rio Grande Southern Railroad introduced the “Galloping Goose”, a curious combination of Pierce-Arrow automobile parts and mechanical imagination that could carry passengers, freight and mail with a one man crew. The “Galloping Goose” provided the Rio Grande Southern Railroad with real operating economy allowing it to operate for another twenty years while endearing itself to generations of rail enthusiasts and tourists.
This superbly detailed and articulated 1:20.3 scale model is constructed with brass and stainless steel. An American made Pittman motor powers the middle truck with a reliable die cast metal gear box.
The model is 'as new' in box, unused.
