Models represent the 2-8-0s_ as they appeared from the mid 1910s through _the 1950s. With more than 100 hand-placed detail parts, these models feature variations in cabs, pilots, tenders, domes and decorations. As with all Blackstone Models locomotives, these models are designed for exceptional slow-speed operation and a minimum operating radius of_ 18 inches. Track power is picked up by all drivers and tender wheels for smooth running, even over switches. Die cast construction provides excellent detail while furnishing the extra weight needed for reliable operation and superior pulling power. All locomotives also are equipped with a custom SoundTraxx(R) Tsunami(R) sound system, golden white LEDs and Kadee(R) No. 714 couplers.
