Nice- complete with the correct (and relatively rare) Southern valve gear. The 2-10-2's were the only USRA class to use it, but I've never seen anything about why.

 
 Probably one of the many Akane models made in the early 1960's. As to why you didn't see anything about them, I don't know, not there is a lot posted. Just old catalog stuff.

At the Frankford service area most of the little critters have gone back to small branch lines. Some Mikado's and GP7's have replaced them. ( Mantua and Athearn )
there will be 4 photos.

** A favorite of mine. Is this old time 4-4-0 world speed record breaker. New York Centrals. 4-4-0 #999. Empire State Express .
* My model is either by Brass Aristo-Craft, or a HO train Co. Both were released about the same time. Built by the same builder in Japan.

Also a Marx locomotive I've been looking for is the NYC 0-4-0t #20. I have it with the circular NYC systems logo but not the NYC in the rectangle box. At Edison NJ yesterday (Greenberg Train Show), I traded for a small Marx set with the loco in it. Here is the set box cover. Next post the open set.

Made it to the Alameda County CA fairgrounds last Saturday for the first train show since March, and made out decent with some new additions to the fleet. Athearn blue box SD45 undecorated, GP30 and GP35 in custom ATSF paint.  
 
I'm not sure how I want to paint them yet as I have a rather nasty case of multi-prototype modelling disorder, where I can't make up my mind about which railroad I want to focus on to model. But for the price I couldn't pass them up.

The GP30 is quite the interesting hack job. I'm assuming an aftermarket cab was put on as it doesn't fit quite right and there are rather large gaps around the carbody at the joints. I don't think I've ever seen an old blue box kit with both cab and nose lights either... whoever was messing around with it boogered up the window glazing with CA glue... but still a cheap dummy unit to bolster the fleet after a nice bath in alcohol to strip the paint and decide on what to paint her up as.
