Broadway Limited T1 4-8-4 Chessie Steam Special #2101 Paragon4 Sound/DC/DCC Locomotive, N Scale

  • Paragon4 Sound & Control System w/Rolling Thunder
  • Dual-Mode decoder w/Back EMF for slow speed DC/DCC operation
  • Die cast locomotive body and chassis 
  • Premium, prototypically accurate paint schemes
  • Separately applied handrails, ladders, bell, etc.


As WWII was drawing to a close in 1945, the Reading Railroad examined their existing roster of motive power and realized they did not own any of the super-power steam locomotives that most other railroads owned and operated. The decision to obtain some of these locomotives was paramount, but with wartime restrictions still in place, the Reading had to look to their existing fleet for conversion. The I10-sa Class 2-10-0 locomotive fit the bill, and Reading started the in-house conversion of 30 of these I10 locomotives to the new class T-1 Northern.

In 2022, Broadway Limited is building their first production of Reading T-1 4-8-4 steam locomotives in N scale.  This "Iron Horse Ramble" model features the Chessie Steam Special repainted livery as it appeared in 1977 running excursions to celebrate the 150th birthday of the B&O Railroad. The model will be equipped with a corresponding unique sound set.
