This Broadway Limited Great Northern Class S-2 4-8-4 with Open Cab steam locomotive is based on the big Northerns used to haul trains across the GN's mainline on the Montana and Spokane Divisions. This brass-hybrid locomotive features a combination of etched brass shell components, cast-brass details for fine detail, and a die-cast chassis for smooth, reliable operation. It has full Paragon3 sound and DCC for realistic sound and motor control. The Paragon3 sound system works with all Broadway Limited Rolling Thunder(TM) advanced sound systems. Other features include a smooth-running flywheel-equipped drive, synchronized puffing smoke, installed engineer and fireman figures, directional lighting, traction tires for great pulling power and magnetic knuckle couplers. This HO Scale Class S-2 4-8-4 features the open cab and can be operated on all DCC systems as well as on standard DC railroads (with limited sound functionality). This model has wheels profiled to operate on Code 83 and larger rail and curves of 22" radius or larger.
