These Electro-Motive desk models are of 16-645E1 Roots blower type engines, skid mounted with AC electric generators. Approximate period of construction was from the 1970s to the 1990s, they are of molded plaster construction, in 1:48 scale. They have a curious mistake, the engines all have turbocharger oil filters at the rear of the right bank of cylinders. These filters were not used on EMD Roots blower engines.
