We call it the GE23, mostly because it was built by General Electric and weighs 23 tons, but also because we proudly offer the Generic Electric, or 'GE' and adding the 23 was an easy way to tell them apart.

We plan on offering the GE23 as both RTR and as an easy assembly kit. If you're interested in owning one of these units, please call because we're only going to make a limited run each year. Here's a brief rundown:

GE23 Number 1 is with her new owners down in PA. The fibreglass shell is being finished and primed. The windows have since been cut out and headlights installed.

• Plate steel sideframes, just like prototype. No castings.
