Union Pacific Big Boy #4012 survives today at the railroad museum Steamtown in Scranton, PA.

Here is some info about this Big Boy.  It is a Westside model built in Japan by KTM (Katsumi).  I sent it to the late great Doug Cockerham in Texas so he could repower it and then paint and weather it for me.  He put a 12VDC Pittman #9414 motor in this engine for me.  It runs very nice in both directions and is both heavy and powerful.  It has a Kadee coupler on the tender and is ready to go to work.  There is also a pilot mounted coupler.  I took the engine apart and changed the gear grease in both the forward and rear gear boxes.  This model has the drop plate between the engine and tender.  A gold plated eight pin connector electrically joins both the engine and tender.  Only four of the eight pins have been used so a sound system may be installed without changing the connector.  The model has both a headlight and back up light.

Additional photos are available upon request.  I took a total of 19 pictures of this engine and tender.

The price is $2,500.00 including FREE Fed Ex Insured Ground shipping to you in any of the 48 states.  This is a far superior UP Big Boy to many of the later Big Boy's that need a total rebuild and they have parts falling off of them while they are still in the box.  As a long time dealer for all of the major brass O Scale imports, I have seen it all.  For over 20 years I had to fix brand new engines as I received them from the importers.  The KTM models are simply far superior to newer models.
