    Ted,

    Looks like a B&O B-24 class. Also......it's a 4-6-0 and not a 4-8-0! I know Sunset imported the B-24 but I don't think the one you have is a Sunset as it looks like an older technology engine. Do you have the tender for it?

    name the ten wheeler

    I think it's brass not cast. As a brass model it can be made by a number of manufactures. Any one have a old brown book. My old book lists three ten wheelers. One made by KTM for the HO train Co.is the rarest. The next listed as a B-18 made for GHC. The last a B-18ca made by Samhongsa in Japan for Sunset. It is listed under remarks as # 2024. This must be the one. A factory painted B&O B-18ca numbered 2024 made in Japan in 1980. That is all the info I have.

    I don't think that it would be Samhongsa, as they're a Korean manufacturer.

    Browse through some of the catalogs at the links below. There are many pictures of HO model steam engines with their tenders. You maybe able to match up some of your new fleet. I looked for a picture of this KTM engine but could not find one. Although I did find a picture of a KTM 4-6-0 class g5 which has a different boiler.
