While cab forward locomotives are the norm in the diesel era, they were very rare in the steam era in North America. The AC-12 was the last class of cab forward locomotives built for Southern Pacific, and in fact were the last steam locomotives of any type built for Southern Pacific.
The advent of viable mainline diesel locomotives eventually caught up with these mammoth beasts of burden, with the final locomotive retired in late 1958.
Long a desirable model for any Southern Pacific late steam fan, Intermountain models of AC-12 locomotives have always been eyecatchingly big, even in N Scale. Check out the video below which is of an earlier release Intermountain AC-12 that was upgraded with DCC & Sound. We did not expect to be able to get any of this special run, as they are so highly desirable to Southern Pacific modelers.
While the user won't have access to all of the incredible features of Proto-Sound 3.0, independent control over the locomotive is possible. The exception is Southern Pacific, who for decades operated a various models of these unusual steam engines. This means you can continue to use your existing DCC controller to independently control your other DCC equipped locomotives in addition to your Proto-Sound 3.0 locomotive on the same track at the same time.
Southern Pacific had a unique need for this type of locomotive with their long tunnels and snow sheds in the Donner Pass area and other mountainous regions primarily on the west coast.


Southern Pacific 4294 was spared that fate and eventually found a home in the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, California. So if you are a Southern Pacific late steam fan and would like this piece of both real world and model railroading history, now is your chance. It was an engine of superlatives: more drivers than anything before or since, too big for the shops of its owner, the Erie Railroad, powerful enough to pull a train nearly five miles long. The advantage of the design was that it kept smoke and soot away from the operating cab, and therefore the crew.
There, complete with it's tender, it holds a place of honor and stands witness to just how big and powerful these locomotives were.
This was a small custom run and we have access to only a few copies, so if you would like one, you need to order now or miss this train! Ninety years ago, in the days before multiple-unit control allowed one throttle to control several locomotives, the Triplex was the ultimate attempt to put as much power as possible in the hands of a single engineer. It would have been impossible for Southern Pacific to operate standard steam locomotives in some of these areas.
The cylinders of the Triplex's middle engine were powered by high pressure steam direct from the boiler, while the front and rear engines used low pressure steam exhausted from the middle cylinders. This is a HO Scale Santa Fe USRA 0-6-0 Steam Locomotive with Smoke and Slope Tender (#2128) from Bachmann. Each triplex replaced three ordinary helper engines, and the new locomotives worked well enough to stay on the Erie roster for more than a decade.


But the design proved a bit over the top and only one more Triplex was ever built, for the Virginian Railway. One reason was poor draft in the firebox, because only the front cylinders exhausted through the smokebox and created draft; the rear cylinders exhausted through a separate smokestack on the tender.
Triplex recreates the flamboyance of the original design but runs much better than the prototype ever did.
Did You Know?The Triplex was engineered to haul 640 fifty-ton cars in a train almost five miles long. But the couplers and draft gear of the early twentieth century could not have handled such a load, so the 2-8-8-8-2 was used as a pusher and never put to a full test. This is the HO Scale DCC Sound Value-Equipped ATSF Alco 2-6-0 Steam Locomotive (#9448) by Bachmann.
