  • Model: LNL6-18040

The streamline 4-8-4 Norfolk & Western "J" is believed by many to be the most impressive steam locomotive ever built. It could have earned a place in history based upon looks alone, but this locomotive's credentials went far beyond appearance. It could easily cruise at 80 to 110 MPH over fast sections of track and was quick to establish new benchmarks for performance and reliability. 

Now you can add this milestone locomotive to your collection. The detail in this die-cast metal locomotive and tender is truly impressive, from the illuminated number boards on its nose right down to the simulated steam emissions from its cylinders.

Lionel's exclusive Railsounds II, which digitally reproduces actual steam locomotive sounds, brings this locomotive to life right before your eyes. Every move is accompanied by the appropriate sound. You head authentic start-up sounds, smoke puff and chugging synchronized to the driving wheels, compressor and steam release sounds and even shut down. Of course there's the clang of an old brass bell and the unmistakable cry of a steam whistle in varying tones.

This magnificent reproduction is a living piece of railroading history.
