You are looking at a beautiful Union Pacific Railroad stunning 4-8-4 Northern Steam Engine and tender.
The highly detailed American Flyer 4-8-4 Northern appears in the classic NYC black of the UP.
In 1937, the Union Pacific received its first 4-8-4 Northern locomotives. Designated FEF, the steamers quickly became legendary fast freight haulers on the vast western system.
First modeled by American Flyer as #332 in 1946, the Northern became a hit on S gauge rails as well. Now, over half a century later, an updated version of this classic locomotive speeds down the American Flyer mainline. Using many of the original tooling dies, the 4-8-4 Northern is constructed almost entirely of die-cast metal. This new reissue also includes the RailSounds sound system complete with whistle, bell and synchronized chuffing features. For operators who prefer a more traditional effect, the RailSounds sound system can be shut off revealing the rhythmic Choo-Choo sound of the mechanical puffing smoke unit.
