American Freedom Train Lee Lines GS-4

In 1976, a small manufacturing firm called Lee Lines offered a massive Standard Gauge GS-4 4-8-4 locomotive in both American Freedom Train and Southern Pacific Daylight paint.

Cleverly made from just a few pieces of cast aluminum, the body was rough, but it fit well with the model toy trains it was meant to run with -- standard gauge production from the 1920s and 30s.

It was probably the largest standard gauge locomotive ever 'mass' produced up until that time. Production was apparently very limited. The Daylight version was available with three matching cars, but the AFT version had none.
