Chicago & Northwestern GP-38 Diesel Locomotive #4600
Manufactured By: Lionel
Model Number: 1-8816
Road Name: CNW
Notes: When I first started playing with my dad's set in 1990, I bought this GP-38 engine to give the old UP 2023 a break. As with many early 90's items that Lionel put out, this one was comprised of mostly plastic pieces, so it sustained a lot of damage over the years. The horn was snapped off, but I have since replaced it. I also replaced the front truck and motor assembly, as the original was damaged. It is now is good operational order, although its conventional configuration makes it pretty much useless on my modern digital layout. Though this engine is pretty darn flimsy and cheap, one good quality that it does have is that it is VERY fast. Don't' ask me how, but this thing really flies and would give any of my new locomotives a run for their money.
