If ever a locomotive were worthy of a VISION model, it is the Niagara. Redesigned from the inside out, our new Niagaras will be the envy of every model railroad's operating department.
By most accounts today, the New York Central’s Niagara rank at the top of the charts when it comes to the development of steam locomotive technology. In head-to-head comparisons with contemporary diesel locomotives, the Niagara held its own against the three-unit sets of E7s competing for the prized spots on the point of the Central’s premier passenger trains.
Averaging 29,000 miles of service monthly, the Niagara could be found on passenger and freight runs. While confined by the clearance and weight restrictions of the Central’s routes, the locomotives made use of every square inch of space within their relatively small footprint, outperforming much larger Northern on other roads. Sadly, the Niagara’s time in the spotlight was brief — only a mere decade of dominance on the rails. But now you can relive all of their glory and power with Lionel's VISION Line Niagara.
