I don’t know of any NYC 4-6-4 by AHM, but they did have a Milwaukee Road “Baltic” 4-6-4 in brass. Kind of “Plain Jane”, but typical of the period.

I have no idea who is the manufacturer, but until someone can specifically identify the product producer, I would not jump to the conclusion that it is not Mantua. Why? How many know that AHM (Yes, that AHM) produced a brass NYC 4-6-4 in the 1970's? I actually saw the engine as it was bought by a Dallas model RR friend who brought it to the standard Friday lunch group. As far as I know, it was the only brass product that AHM produced.
While I doubt that the gondola is a Mantua product, I would not discount it without some hard evidence. Perhaps Mantua wanted to test the brass import waters just as AHM did..
