Heisler 117

Heisler 117. This Heisler logging locomotive was manufactured by Rivarossi and imported by AHM. According to the package, it is based on a L. C. & N. Co. locomotive. I removed the original lettering, replacing it with "Glanville Lumber Company," and added two re-railers. One of the first of the high-quality plastic logging locomotives, this model strikes me as quite handsome but very large in comparison to my various Shays and more conventional 0-4-0s. [What it looks like after weathering and adding more details.]
