This Bachmann HO Scale 4-4-0 with Wood Tender is based on the fancy steam locomotives from North America's early days of railroading. Decorated in colorful schemes, locomotives like this were favorites from the mid-1800s and lasted into the early 1900s when replaced by much larger engines. This modern model of a vintage classic features a detailed injection-molded body, fine decoration and E-Z Mate(R) Mark II knuckle couplers. It performs best on 18" or larger radius curves. This DCC-ready model has a factory-installed 8-pin socket for the DCC decoder installation of your choice. The 4-4-0 with Wood Tender is one of many Bachmann HO Scale locomotives.
