Help. What is this?

What kind of locomotive is this? Robbman, can you help me? More importantly, does anybody know where I can get a cab roof for this? BLMA? I got this as part of a lot recently. I am thinking of detailing it up either in Conrail or, imagine this, Rock Island livery (shocker!)

I'm not Robbman, nor do I play him on TV...but I can answer the question. It's a high nose RSD15 by Mehano or Model Power. You could make a new roof by cutting up an Atlas cab I expect.

I might have a cab roof for this in my parts bin. I'll look this weekend.

This is my Dad's. He bought it long before I came into the picture. I am not sure who made it or what kind of switcher it's supposed to represent. Any help or info would be appreciated. For those wondering, yes, it still runs (rough), and I am going to guess its about 40 years old.

Thanks to those who answered my first question too.

Wow! I remember those. I haven't seen one in a long time, probably more than 30 years. I seem to recall they were made by Arnold-Rapido and ran like crap right from the box up until they quit altogether. I think they were one of the very first N scale locos that I ever saw.
