Broadway Limited Imports - HO Scale - Paragon4 Hybrid ATSF Blue Goose 4-6-4

HO Scale

 

Dear HO Scale Customers,

Broadway Limited Imports has new Paragon4 Hybrid ATSF Blue Goose locomotives!

 

The ATSF 3460 class consisted of six "Super Hudson" 4-6-4 steam locomotives built by Baldwin in 1937.   One of those, #3460, was the Santa Fe's only streamlined locomotive.  It was painted in a unique light blue and silver paint scheme and gained the name "Blue Goose".   The Blue Goose was delivered to Shopton, Iowa in January 1938, and it pulled many of the Santa Fe's famed passenger trains until it was retired and scrapped in 1956.  

 


In our first production run of the Blue Goose, we are offering two models of the early locomotive as it appeared in 1938 and four models of the locomotive as it appeared between 1939 and retirement.  The only difference between the two 1938 models is the presence of the road number "3460" on the side of the tender.  Each of our four post-1938 model has a unique paint scheme, prototypically accurate for a specific time frame.  The most visible detail differences between the early and late Blue Goose versions are the removal of the full skirts and the addition of the scissor smokestack and associated equipment.  

 

 

All of the models have hand-crafted brass boilers, cabs, and tender bodies, and die cast locomotive and tender chassis.   Each model comes with our Paragon4 Sound/DC/DCC sound system with synchronized puffing smoke and integral GoPack capacitors.
