Here's where you can discuss all general diecast stuff - mystery items, ask who made a model of a particular car, ask for info about an obscure manufacturer or chat about anything else related to vehicles smaller than 1:1 scale!

Found FAL of Italy Brass Locomotive ..any other info out there ??? 2 years, 4 months ago #1

I found this Locomotive in a box .


Did some searching around and found that it was made by FAL of Italy.


I found some other brass cars they made but not this Loco !


It has this " WESTERN " stamped on the bottom .


Just wondering if someone know what it was about ?


It is not a bank !


Maybe a premium of some kind ?


THANKS !






CAN NOT UPLOAD ANY IMAGES !!!!!

I believe FAL (Should be F.A.L.), is the small Italian foundary specialising in the casting of statues, sculptures (bronze, brass or silver reproductions, from each material)- Lost wax casting (jewellery, medals, chandeliers, lamps, etc.).- Production of models on request (eg statues, busts, reliefs, etc.).


F.A.L. stands for...Fonderia Artistica Leopaldo (Artisitic Foundary Leopaldo) in English!


I know of a Bugatti, Mercedes-Benz SSK, Mercedes-Benz 300SL, Citroen saloon, VW Beetle cabriolet, Porsche 911 or 930, Rolls-Royce Phantom III and the Western Locomotive mentioned above.


Many more models exist but without catalogues and the short production runs it is difficult to give a complete listing.


Below I show an article I did for a collector friend who aquired the Rolls-Royce and came to me for assistance.





Hope that is of some help.
