Here is my original Leslie SL4T ex-Amtrak EMD SDP40F #531
I see now. The real on is lower.
No, not true. The real one is not lower. The replica is pretty much a spot on copy of the Leslie low-profile 5-chime manifold. Ken used an original to get the correct dimensions when he modified a standard 5-chime (S5T) manifold. He marked it as a replica so it would never be sold as an original at an inflated price.
Oh, the original appeared lower.
