Dear HO Scale Customers;

Broadway Limited Imports has added a New SP GS-4 Steam Locomotive with Paragon4 Sound/DC/DCC

https://static.pwrs.ca/product_images/349747_1.jpg

The Southern Pacific GS-4 locomotives were a class of 4-8-4 "Northern" type steam locomotives operated by the Southern Pacific from 1941 to 1958. The SP owned a total of 28 GS-4 engines, numbered 4430 through 4457. The GS-4's were quite similar to the SP GS-3 Northerns, except with the GS-4, the SP introduced a dual-headlight casing, with the top light being a Mars light, and also the GS-4 had an all-weather cab.

The GS-4 locomotives were designed and primarily used for passenger service. They were capable of reaching high speeds, and wore the colorful Daylight paint scheme to match Southern Pacific Daylight passenger cars. Some of the engines were painted black during WWII, and most of them were eventually painted black later in life.

In their first production run, Broadway Limited Imports are offering several variations of the GS4. Broadway Limited Imports are building locomotives with both an early appearance and late appearance - the most noticeable difference is the location of the numberboards/trainboards. Broadway Limited Imports are also building two distinct tenders, with the primary difference being the MU box and associated conduit on the later type. In addition to the detail differences, Broadway Limited Imports are offering models of several paint schemes, including two versions of the #4449 Excursion locomotives, an American Freedom Train model, and three different in-service paint schemes with multiple road numbers of each.

Each of Broadway Limited Imports models will be available with their newest Paragon4 Sound/DC/DCC sound system with synchronized puffing smoke and integral GoPack capacitors. Broadway Limited Imports models have die cast locomotive and tender bodies for maximum weight and tractive effort. See below for additional model features including the full list of individually controllable lights.
