    I realize it is a HO scale train, but I was hoping if someone could tell me what the manufacturer and type of the real train this model is based off?

    It appears to be a 0-6-0 Mantua slope back switcher used in yards for moving cars around. Pennsylvania railroad would be my first quess. Is it metal?

    Could be an MDC/Roundhouse (just hadda muddy the waters a bit :p ;) ) as well. Many roads had variations on this, the slope-back tender gave hostlers the ability to see easily as they were backing up. Find you a prototype and break your bank on some Kemtron and Cal-Scale castings :thumb:

    The 0-6-0 in question is a MDC/Roundhouse loco based on a Southern Pacific proto-type. :rolleyes:
