The ever-innovative Southern Pacific turned some of their steam locomotives around to keep the crew out of the smoke through the many Sierra Mountain tunnels. The AC-12 class was the most modern of these “Cab Forwards.”

Pilot engines are fully operable and finished with no decoration applied.
It’s a unique way to appreciate the fine form of your favorite engine, examine it’s many separately-applied realistic details, and to elevate your locomotive to true collector’s status. A special clear coating is applied to the metal on these undecorated engines to protect them for years to come.
