Read the text. It's a very bad photo of the utter crap that Lima called a N gauge Deltic model....

You mean Lima released it like that?
Maybe he should 'weather' it. At least that way it would be unique and would be guaranteed to undergo a dramatic rise in price in future years ;-)

It's Lima deltic which has been shortened to fit on a 31 chassis. Which begs the question "why??!"
One guess is that it dates from the dark days pre-1981 before Farish started producing modern image stock. Perhaps an attempt to get a little variety with the pitiful amount of RTR there was back then.
