Class Locomotives, nicknamed the ‘sport model,’ were ordered from
ALCO and delivered to the D&RGW in 1923 for multiple uses throughout
the narrow gauge system. Mostly known for pulling the famous passenger
train, The San Juan, they also saw service pulling the Shavano, the
Chili Line, and Silverton mixed trains, as well as many different
freight assignments. Included in this release will be Nos. 473, 476 and
478, which survive today on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge
Railroad. The other engines replicated in this release will be Nos. 470
and 475, which served the D&RGW until 1942 when they were
transferred to the U.S. Army for use on the White Pass & Yukon
Railroad. Following the war effort, these locomotives were shipped to
the Lower 48 and scrapped.
ready-to-run models will be equipped with a road pilot, doghouse,
precision can motor, maintenance-free lighting, and a DC/DCC SoundTraxx®
Digital Sound Decoder™.
