1-3) Unfortunately I do not have the data on this old tunnel motor. So, I do not know if it is a former SP or DRGW unit.

The big box the rear headlight is mounted on shows this to be an ex-SP unit.

Great detail shots of the tunnel motor. Must model it with the bolstered two axle trucks.
Thanks Pedro!

I was looking at the 4 wheel trucks and suddenly noticed how thin the wheel was getting..  Goodness, how thin do they get before they are changed?
