Railway Eagle Fake or Real???
Hello All, I've been looking at Railway Eagles for a while and came across one for sale. I would like to get some input from the experts before I make a move. This one looks good, but the front surface looks a little rough and not polished as most legit ones I see. The maker mark is J&Z and it measures 26 1/2" wide x 13 1/2" tall. Thanks in advance for you help!!

Welcome to the forum!
You need to avoid this one, it's a very good fake example, but the mounting studs are incorrect for this maker.
