The 4-4-0 was the passenger engine of the last half of the nineteenth century. The subject of dozens of Currier & Ives lithographs, the 4-4-0 carried the nation westward, touched cowcatchers at the Golden Spike in 1869, transported millions of Americans out of their home towns for the first time, and hauled a good deal of freight as well. Often beautifully colored and pinstriped, the 4-4-0 steam engine became a symbol of U.S. railroading — so much so that this wheel arrangement was named the "American."

For 2021, this Premier model of the 4-4-0 is decorated as it appeared on the point of America’s finest name trains of the 1890s. Pair these engines with our wood-sided coaches in matching paint schemes, and treat your 1/48 passengers to the most luxurious form of land transportation known to man in the late Victorian Era.
