Milw Streamlined G6ps Update - PSC

09/18/2014

Precision Scale has been working on Milwaukee Road Streamlined G6ps 4-6-0 engines.  They set out some pre-production photos for your review.  This project is scheduled to only have 65 pieces, so these will be a bit rare.  Please contact us if you would like to obtain one of these exquisite models.

Based on additional customer interest, it is possible that a third version of the streamlined G6ps could be built.  The engine was originally delivered with no cab rails or step and had no Indian logo on the tender.  Later the Indian logo, rails, step were added. Both of these versions had the full skirting.   Please contact us soon with your preferences.
