Santa Fe Railroad Tugboat
6-24109 | Price: $199.99
An important part of a railroad's roster, tugboats were a common sight around almost every harborfront. Often dressed in their railroad's livery, tugboats became waterborne locomotives, hauling carfloats across the harbor. Two new tugboats join the Lionel fleet, sporting the colors of the Pennsylvania Railroad and those of the Santa Fe, featuring lights, smoke and sounds. Each new model also contains some exciting enhancements for 2003. In addition to interior lighting, the tugboats now include illuminated marker lights and an illuminated spotlight. The depth and clarity of the sounds are improved. Along with the authentic whistle are new seaside effects such as seagulls, waves and a foghorn. The mast rigging was redesigned for improved ease of assembly. The water wake base is removable, so these models can be easily displayed on a train room shelf or integrated into a waterfront layout. While four AA batteries (not included) can power the lights and sounds in a display environment, you may choose to purchase a 36-watt Accessory Transformer 6-32923 for an easy way to access all of the features, including smoke, whether as a shelf display or layout accessory.
