Joshua Lionel Cowen Series Union Pacific 4-8-8-4 Big Boy
  Picture yourself in 1942 standing atop Sherman Hill in Wyoming alongside the Union Pacific mainline. In the distance there's a whistle, and then the characteristic eight beats per revolution–it has to be an articulated steamer. As the noise grows louder, you see a mighty 4-8-8-4 Big Boy come into view, pulling a 70 to 80 car freight train at an amazing 50 m.p.h.
  The massive Union Pacific Big Boy is the fastest and heaviest single-expansion steam locomotive ever built. UP Vice President Otto Jabelman's Department of Research and Mechanical Standards solved the need for doubleheading, helpers, and splitting long freights. A magnificent piece of railroad engineering, the American Locomotive
Company (ALCo) produced 20 Big Boys in 1941 and another five in 1944.  
   In service, the Big Boys primary territory was west of Cheyenne, Wyoming on
Sherman Hill and in Utah's Wasatch Mountains.
  The Lionel Union Pacific Big Boy premieres the introduction of the Legacy System–the next generation of TrainMaster Command Control. Big Boy #4004, built in 1941, appears with the prototypical pilot-mounted air brake radiators and two from 1944–#4023 and #4024–feature accurate pilots as well. The 14-wheel centipede tender features a removable coal load and an auger at the bottom of the coal bunker.

FEATURES:
  • TMCC II Legacy equipped—able to run in Command Control Mode or in Conventional Transformer Control Mode
  • Odyssey System for speed control with ON/OFF switch
  • RailSounds 5.0 sound system with custom recorded effects including:
  • Multi-part CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements to create realistic operating scenarios from pulling out of the yard to initiating an emergency stop, in both conventional and command control environments
  • Realistic operator-controlled effects, including the water injector, activated by the CAB-1 Remote Controller
  • Prototypical four chuffs per revolution
  • DynaChuff synchronized chuffing that shifts through 15 levels of intensity as the locomotive gains speed
  • Simulate the locomotive running light or battling against a heavy load by manually adjusting the DynaChuff intensity with CAB-1 commands
  • MultiWhistle effect simulates blows at different steam pressures, long and short attacks, and even extra quilling with each press of the whistle button
  • Independently adjustable volume control—use the CAB-1 Remote Controller to lower the level of background effects such as chuffing while keeping operator-controlled effects such as the whistle at full volume
