MTH HO 80-3222-1 Norfolk and Western 4-8-4 J class steam freight set includes a powered Norfolk and Western 4-8-4 J class #600, and 6 Norfolk and Western freight coal hopper cars.
A visit to the Norfolk & Western in the early 1950s was like a scene from Jurassic Park: prehistoric beasts romping in their natural mountain habitat. Built in several groups between 1941 and 1950, a mere fourteen J's were able to handle 80% of the N&W's passenger traffic, because their designers addressed one of steam power's key weaknesses: down time for maintenance and repairs. The muscular PA profile and its elegant nose, with the characteristic grille around the headlight, were designed by Ray Patten, General Electric's head of industrial design. Long after all other PA's had gone to scrap, four restored ex-Santa Fe units remained in service on the Delaware & Hudson into the late 1970's.
Like the firm’s EP-4 and EF-4 “Little Joe” electrics, this HO bipolar has an array of sound effects and metal pantographs that raise and lower automatically or by remote control. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. The Norfolk and Western freight coal hopper car set includes road numbers 22046, 22049, 22022, 22036, 22038, and 22010. At a time when other roads were letting their remaining steam engines rot away and giving them minimal service in dirty, dingy, soon-to-close facilities, the N&W was still running a first-class steam operation and even building new power.
Handsome, powerful (5100 hp), and, as a test on the Pennsylvania Railroad proved, capable of hauling 15 cars at 110 mph, it was designed and styled not by one of the big three builders (ALCo, Baldwin, and Lima) or a famous designer like Raymond Loewy or Henry Dreyfuss, but by the N&W's home-grown team of designers and craftsmen at the road's Roanoke, Virginia shops.

Equipped with Timken roller bearings on all axles and rods, Timken-designed lightweight pistons and rods, and an automatic lubrication system that reached more than 200 points including the bell bearings, the Js were designed to go a quarter-million miles between scheduled shop visits. The A and B-unit models are available in a direct-current version or equipped with a Proto-Sound 3.0 decoder that operates in DC, Digital Command Control (DCC), or MTH’s proprietary Digital Control System (DCS). While Electro-Motive's E-units easily outsold Alco's passenger engine, the PA is widely regarded as the most beautiful first-generation diesel - period. At the time, GE and Alco were partners in the locomotive business, with GE making the electrical equipment for all Alco diesels. Sold to the Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Mexico (FNM) in 1978, most of the units eventually deteriorated to junk status, although one remained operational.
See and hear this new locomotive as it hauls a freight train on the Model Railroader club layout, the Milwaukee, Racine & Troy. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). With its main line through some of the nation's richest coalfields, it was still betting on the future of steam; as late as 1955, the N&W didn't roster a single diesel. For power and quick acceleration through mountainous territory, and to make room for the largest possible boiler, they equipped the streamlined J with 70" drivers - unusually small for a 4-8-4 and fully 10" smaller than the Southern Pacific's Daylight GS-4 of the same wheel arrangement. Like a race car, they were engineered for quick pit stops: in less than an hour, a J could be fully serviced, lubricated, filled with coal and water and ready for its next dash over the road's 676-mile main line between Norfolk and Cincinnati, hauling the deluxe daylight Powhatan Arrow or the overnight Pocahontas.

Perhaps no other locomotive looked so right at the head of the streamlined trains of the late forties and fifties that were the last hurrah of American long-distance passenger service. Patten's design was described as "a locomotive so distinctive and so powerful looking that it actually helps railroads sell their services to passengers and shippers." While Alco would later fall by the wayside, GE went on to become America's largest locomotive builder by the early 1990's. The MTH bipolar will operate on DC and Digital Command Control (DCC) layouts as well as those controlled by DCS. The 294 PA's and cabless PB's built between 1946 and 1953 powered some of America's most famous name trains, from the Southern Pacific's Daylight to the Pennsylvania's Broadway Limited. 4449, the restored Southern Pacific Daylight, and the Smithsonian Institution repatriated two of the junked units for rebuilding.
One of the units will be restored to Santa Fe livery for static display, while Doyle is bringing the other PA back to life in the Nickel Plate Road "Bluebird" scheme.
