BOWSER EXECUTIVE LINE ALCO C-628 "CENTURY SERIES" Conrail No.6725
The C-628 model in AT Collection roster is a Bowser ESU LokSound product. Level of details is execellent on the carbody, but some important details on tracks are missing (brake-chains, sanding pipes, speed detectors and much more). Absent also the Sinclair model radio antenna, installed with the introduction in the Conrail line. Avoiding difficult interventions so as not to completely change the model, we tried to add as many missing details as possible. The work was completed with a meticulous weathering. Perfect sounds provided from the ESU decoder.
