    Good morning everyone!
    I am sorry to bother you, but here is my situation and I hope someone can help me: I bought some HO scale model engines last week to resell on eBay. Trains are not my normal forte, but I thought I'd give it a whirl. I have three listed right now, but apparently I may have misidentified one of them. This one says Ajin Korea on the bottom, and I believe it's an Overland model, but I don't know how to go about positively identifying it:

    Someone emailed me last night and asked what the OMI number is on this one. I don't even know what an OMI is! This one also says Ajin Korea on the bottom, and has a date stamp of 1992:

    Finally, I do believe I have identified this one appropriately, as the box I have is the original one (I think). This one is a Kato model, C44-9W 37-1210, Santa Fe #605:

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give me, and I hope it's OK to post links here. Couldn't figure out how to do attachments. Please be patient with my ignorance.:(

    The first one does look like Overland, which by the way is identified as OMI, which should answer another question you raised. The last one is Kato, I have the same engine at home. The Overland is a model of the SD60's built and leased by Oakway to the BN for coal train service back in the 80"s ? I believe.

    Second one I do not have any ID for.

    The OMI number is simply the model number Overland has for that particular number.
    brass collectors use those numbers to catalog different models.

    Perhaps some collectors will add to this, I am an operator and not into brass.

    Thanks for your reply. I realized later this morning that letting you know the title I listed it (the 1st one) under may be helpful. The title is:
    Ajin Overland HO Scale EMD SD60(?) #9071 and I think that's where my problem might be.
    Thanks again,
    Adriana
