    This is a Ken Kidder model of a Cincinatti & Lake Erie 635 series Box Motor from the late 1960s. Several of these Box Motors came to California, some to CCT and some to PE, after the C&LE quit. Another couple ended up on the Tulsa-Sapulpa Union RR in Tulsa OK.

    PE never operated the three C&LE box motors they purchased, they sat unused at Torrance.

    These Kidder models have large motor which powers both trucks, and they can pull a good load.

    Looking for a roster of Ken Kidder Railway Models. Specific items are 4-wheel brass HO passenger cars #4020, #4021, and $4022. Items are very utilitarian in design and manufacture. Couplers are loop and prong – (not pin and link) more like something found on a Marx set or pre-WWII Lionel. Need some idea of current mkt prices (BRASSTRAINS.COM has NO listings.

    Any suggestions appreciated.
