Norfolk & Western Class A

Continuing in a new line of highly detailed, smooth running Lionel articulated steam locomotives comes the Norfolk & Western Class A.  Built in N&W’s famous Roanoke shops from the late 1930’s to 1950, the Class A set new speed records for steam locomotives.  Weighing in at close to 600,000 pounds, these behemoths were needed for speed and power through the mountainous areas of N&W’s  routes and the ability to haul heavy tonnage at speeds of 60 mph on the flat areas of the route.    The Class A’s were so successful, that N&W built 43 in total.  They proved to be worth their weight in gold.

Lionel brings this impressive locomotive to life with the all-new N&W 1218 Class A Steam Locomotive.  Made from completely new tooling, this locomotive brings power and realism to your layout.  Powered by a brawny Pittman® motor, the die-cast locomotive and tender glide effortlessly across your tracks.  Its features are seemingly endless.  Included are Command Control, Class A Articulated RailSounds, a swing-out scale coupler on the pilot, wireless tether, brakeman’s doghouse on tender, red firebox glow, lighted number boards, separately applied metal details, and much, much more.  The 1218, restored to its original splendor,  was put into excursion service in 1987, and is recreated yet again as only Lionel can.  Do not let this opportunity go by the wayside.  Rush to your dealer and order the ONLY Class A with Lionel quality and features.
