About this Product

1:160 scale General Electric E33 - Conrail livery 4605

The E33 was built by General Electric in 1955 for the Virginian Railway, where they were known as the EL-C. Following the Virginian's merger with the Norfolk and Western Railway in 1959, electrification was abandoned. The locomotives were sold to the New Haven Railroad, where they worked through successive Penn Central and Conrail ownership until scrapped in 1981.
Throughout their lives several modifications were made to the locomotives. This model is correct for loco 4605 in Conrail livery.

  • No rear high level multiple unit power cable
  • Half length underframe skirting
  • Box on front right walkway
  • Modified roof-box grill arrangement

Assembly Instructions

Exploded View - front and left

Exploded View - rear and right

Sprue for separate parts

Included in the model are the main body and a sprue with all the handrails and other parts which need to be added separately, as illustrated in the diagrams above.
The model is designed to fit over an Atlas Alco C628 chassis. Some metal will need to be removed from the chassis block for it to sit inside the body, and a small amount of plastic needs to be trimmed from the outer corners of the truck frames to allow them to rotate freely.
The part-relief underframe equipment detail should be attached to the side of the chassis block.
I recommend using acrylic paints for this model as they work well on the Frosted Ultra Detail plastic. Enamel paints have been reported to take an excessive amount of time to dry on Frosted Ultra Detail so should not be used.
Suitable transfers are available from Microscale Industries for the Conrail logos and numbers (product code 60-157).
