For the first time ever, the pride of the Milwaukee Road! All new tooling!

Preserving some of the fond memories of railroad steam trains, road number 261 stands proud and ready to roll.

This magnificent 4-8-4 Northern style locomotive and beautiful complimentary coal tender exude both the history of a unique railroad and pure steam power. Available in two road numbers, Lionel fully salutes the historical significance of this fan favorite.
Forged of ALCo iron in 1944 with its 74” drivers, the ‘261’ was a powerful presence in the Chicago and Minneapolis areas for more than a decade. Along with one other Milwaukee Road S3, the 261 was saved from being scrapped in 1954. It has been beautifully restored and operates today as an excursion train for all to enjoy!
Painstakingly painted and designed as tributes to the modern excursion train #261 and to the original Milwaukee Road #267, these highly respected heroes of the Midwest and Western lines are exquisitely proportioned and can now cruise right into your livery.
