Product

The images show the first pre-production hand samples. This is a set consisting of two steam locomotives as they looked at the opening of the first transcontinental railroad in the USA. The construction, paint schemes, and lettering are the same as the two replicas - Union Pacific RR locomotive "119" and the Central Pacific RR "Jupiter" locomotive as they presently are used at the memorial site at Promontory Summit in Utah. These are finely detailed models with heavy metal construction including many separately applied details. Each locomotive is driven by a powerful motor, has an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions such as headlights, cab lighting, firebox lights, and much more. The running sounds and a whistle and bell activated by reed switches will also work in analog operation. Each locomotive has a built-in smoke unit with steam exhaust synchronized with the wheels as well as cylinder steam and steam exhaust at the whistle, when the latter is activated. The cab doors and smoke box doors can be opened. On each locomotive, there is a detailed working link & pin coupling on the tender and a separately applied moving coupling drawbar on the cowcatcher. The inboard mounted running gear in the locomotive frame is fully modelled and moves. There is a coupling between each locomotive and its tender, which can be adjusted for two lengths. Length over the couplers for locomotive "119" 55 cm / 21-5/8", for "Jupiter" locomotive 52 cm / 20-1/2". A reproduction of an American track spike – constructed of metal and genuine gold-plated – is included with the models. In addition, there is also a model of a typical flagstaff with a scale American flag to fit on the locomotives. The locomotives are packaged together in a quality wooden case. Figures of locomotive engineers and firemen as well as LGB standard couplers and American knuckle couplers are also included.

One-time series in 2019 for the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad in the USA – strictly limited worldwide to 299 pieces.
