Because it was the most widely employed wheel arrangement in this country from the 1880s through the end of the steam era, the 4-4-0 became known as the “American.” The original ornate locomotives gave way to Americans with cleaner lines, such as these Baldwin “modern” models. Bachmann has taken the modern 4-4-0 to the next level with features such as an NMRA -compliant 8-pin decoder and Soundtraxx® Tsunami® sound technology that lets you enjoy every authentic whistle, bell, chuff, clang, and more in realistic high-quality 16-bit sound.
