Question by Al: I have an HO Scale Train that is blue and yellow and says Santa Fe 3571 but no manufacturer is listed. How do?
How do I find the name of the manufacturer. I have pictures of the train, but there is no manufacturer listed on the train anywhere. Please dont answer by saying look on the bottom of the train, I have looked on every possible spot and it is not on the train I am looking for someone who is knowledgable on these trains and can identify the manufacturer by the description. Thanks.

Do you know the MODEL locomotive ? What does it look like ? Diesel ? Blue and Yellow suggest BNSF (Burlington Northern & Sante Fe), but that’s not much of a clue…
Give me a picture and I’ll search through the primary manufacturers.
EDIT – is THIS the model ? http://www.flickr.com/photos/39207874@N08/3653519890/
IF so, it’s an Athearn Blue Box GP38-2 Dummy ATSF 3571 – $ 15.00
As best as I can determine it’s an out of production model… here is a current GP38-2 from Athearn in the Santa Fe livery – http://www.athearn.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=ATH7990
