“A piece of history” whilst I was a child, my father introduced me to the world of model railroading. Over the course of my pre-teen, teenage and early adult life my interest and passion grew, as I’m sure much did the the same for many of you. Now while he has never been into it as deep as I have come to be, he did have favorites, in his case it was the Chessie System, Western Maryland and the good ol Pennsylvania RR. My first induction into this hobby was a G scale train with a circle of track he mysteriously and miraculously came up one day passing a dumpster. But the day the itch finally caught was my 13th birthday, I opened a big box to find a Bachmann Empire Builder trainset in N-scale. I don’t have it anymore though, my 13 year old self played with it till the wheels fell off, but I’ve somehow managed to keep this, possibly a piece of a passion he never fully had the chance to indulge in, yet instead, pass it on to me. I still have to get him over to run some trains!
For any who can help me identify this loco would be greatly appreciated. I know it’s early n-scale, 70s era, as for brand it doesn’t say, the only branding it has is “made in Yugoslavia” on the bottom
