Approximate Coupler to Coupler Measurements: 28. In 1950, three J class steamers rolled out of the Norfolk & Western Railway's famed Roanoke shops.
Fatefully, they would prove the last 4-8-4's built in America. The bullet-nosed behemoths sped signature trains such as the Powhatan Arrow along the N&W's entire 676 mile mainline often at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour. Although retired from service after less than a decade, one of the graceful J's remained a true steam survivor. N&W #611 headed excursion runs as late as the mid-1990s and is currently on display at the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke. With a vented pilot, solid pilot wheels, and a flat tender deck, this scale-sized Lionel model specifically portrays the #611 during the height of her passenger service.
Along with these details, the J includes a wide array of enhancements from its original 2001 release. These features range from the RailSounds 5.0 sound system to smaller, more prototypically sized classification lights. TrainMaster Command Control equipped-able to run in Command Control Mode or in Conventional Transformer Control Mode.
Odyssey System for speed control with ON/OFF switch. RailSounds 5.0 sound system with custom recorded effects including.Multi-part CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements to create realistic operating scenarios from pulling out of the yard to initiating an emergency stop. Realistic operator-controlled effects, including the water injector, activated by the CAB-1 Remote Controller. DynaChuff synchronized chuffing that shifts through 15 levels of intensity as the locomotive gains speed. Simulate the locomotive running light or battling against a heavy load by manually adjusting the DynaChuff intensity level with CAB-1 commands. MultiWhistle effect simulates blows at different steam pressures, long and short attacks, and even extra quilling with each press of the whistle button. Independently adjustable volume control-use your CAB-1 Remote Controller to lower the level of background effects such as chuffing while keeping operator-controlled effects such as the whistle at full volume. Many operator-controlled effects including CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements are accessible using only a conventional transformer. Dual FatBoy speakers for the ultimate in sound reproduction. High-torque Pittman® motor with momentum flywheel. Wireless Tether connection between locomotive and tender. Directional lighting including operating headlight and back-up light. Die-cast metal locomotive body, frame and trucks. Swing-out scale front coupler with interchangeable O gauge coupler for double-heading. ElectroCoupler on rear of tender. Accurate separately applied builder's plates. Die-cast metal tender body and trucks. Realistic separately applied coal load. Individually opening tender water hatches reveal easy-to-access RailSounds controls.
