- Finely detailed metal models constructed of brass and die-cast zinc in the tradition of the earlier LGB metal models.
- Series strictly limited to 299 pieces.
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
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
