    I saw this one on eBay and was wondering if it is a reasonable model of 2702:

    Frisco 2702 280 Consolidation DC DCC Sound Sunset Brass CP HO 8070

    It is not clear to me if this is an original Frisco model or a stand in from a CP unit?

    2732 appears in the Stagner book, but does not look like a good match.

    Short story is no; it’s not even close. The model is a PRR H-6. Might be close to something in the 900-classes of Frisco 2-8-0’s. The Belpaire firebox is hard to disguise.
