Just received this gem:

It’s a brass GS-6 steam locomotive made from Katsumi in H0 and lettered as Southern Pacific.

Southern Pacific GS-6 Warbaby, Brass, made by Katsumi

Brass model of a SP GS-6 with partial skirting. This type of locomotive was mostly used on the San Joaquin Daylight.

The brass model was manufactured by Katsumi.

The locomotive is painted black/silver and lacks the distinctive side skirtings found on the more famous Daylight GS4.
Still, it sports the skyline casing and the cone-shaped smokebox.

These locomotives were also known as ‘War Babies’.
