Pioneering many of the latest and greatest coal hauling locomotives ever built, the Norfolk and Western Railway – last of the big steam railroads – did not rush to adopt new diesel technology. In fact, they were the last major American railroad to convert their liveries to diesel-electric power. But, by 1960 they were firmly committed to these more efficient engines, with fresh deliveries of diesels like RS11’s, F-M’s, and GP9’s added to the roster. From other railroads, Norfolk & Western also acquired a large number of other diesel engines, including GP7’s from Wabash and Nickel Plate. With this final wave of conversion to diesel by the last great steam railroad in the U.S., the reign of steam was truly over.

This true workhorse comes equipped with some of the best features available in O gauge railroading, including the LEGACY Control System, LEGACY RailSounds, and Odyssey II Speed Control. To enhance your Norfolk & Western railroading experience, specially selected rolling stock is also available. A colorful, scale-sized N & W hopper and a highly realistic northeastern style caboose with smoke and lights provide an opportunity to expand your collection of this important railroad.
