In the 1920s, Baldwin offered a standard light Decapod designed to meet the needs of smaller railroads in search of powerful locomotives with proper weight distribution suitable for lighter rail. Despite selling only a small handful to short lines, a surprising number of this group can still be seen today. None of them however are as well known, nor run nearly as long as Great Western / Strasburg Railroad No. 90. Built in 1924 for the Great Western, 90 spent her first 43 years hauling sugar beets in Colorado. In 1967, the Strasburg Railroad purchased the locomotive and relocated her to Pennsylvania. For over 50 years, No. 90 has been the regular power on the railroad's passenger excursions as well as revenue freight runs. Lovingly and meticulously maintained on one of North Americas oldest and most popular railroads, No. 90 has introduced millions of people to the sights, sounds and smells of a steam locomotive. Long overdue, No. 90 is now available for the first time in O scale as Lionel's newest brass-hybrid locomotive. Combining the high detail of handcrafted brass with the reliability and features of our die-cast LEGACY steam, this model offers the best of both worlds. Lionel will produce three variations of this locomotive to capture changing details through the decades. This first release includes both original and current variations. The extended smokebox years will be covered in a future release. As-delivered versions will also include similar sister locomotives for the Osage and Seaboard Air Line. (Additional roads will be offered in the future as well.) Strasburg paint scheme variations include some of the most popular from the 1990s to the mid-2000s - and a special return to 1967 from a photo charter in 2020. Lionel would like to thank the many men and women at the Strasburg Railroad for their help in making this model possible and indeed for their tireless efforts to keep history alive.
