Premier Y3 2-8-8-2 Mallet prices have been reduced! Available in Norfolk & Western, Santa Fe, Rio Grande, and Baltimore & Ohio these engines offer all the power and strength of an Articulated Mallet but are much smaller than a Big Boy or Challenger! All are equipped with Proto-Sound 3.0, DCS, and if you are lucky enough to have or find an MTH N&W Auxiliary Water Tender they have a wire to connect with one! Also we have found that while they are labeled for an O-72 curve they can traverse an O-60 curve. However, they will not go through an O-60 switch.
Premier Line Y3 2-8-8-2 Mallets $1499.95/$1399.95

Next up we have two videos to show you of engines from the RailKing Imperial Line. The first is of Nickel Plate Road 765 and the second is of Norfolk & Western J #611. Both engines are shown hauling the Norfolk Southern Executive Passenger Cars which are also from the RailKing Line. As of this time we are running low on all of these items as they are quite popular for several reasons.
Nickel Plate Road 765 is currently the largest operating steam locomotive east of the Mississippi River and is currently the largest engine participating in Norfolk Southern’s 21st Century Steam Program. The 765 was no stranger to Northeast Ohio during its employment on the Nickel Plate Road and hauled both freight and passenger trains during its time.
Norfolk & Western 611 will soon supersede NKP 765 as the largest operating steam locomotive east of the Mississippi River. The Queen of Steam is presently being restored to operating condition at the North Carolina Railroad Museum’s Spencer Roundhouse. It will likely be part of the 21st Century Steam Program this summer!
The Norfolk Southern Executive Train or more commonly referred to as the Office Car Special is used by NS to both promote and inspect the railroad. It is usually hauled by the Executive F-Units, which you can order in the 2015 Volume 1 Catalog, but the cars are now a common sight with many other preserved passenger cars on 21st Century Steam Excursions.
RailKing Nickel Plate Road 765 $409.95
RailKing Norfolk & Western J 611 $419.95
