Product Details

Like the Daylight 4-8-4's, the Norfolk & Western's Class J Northerns represented steam power at its zenith. Fast, powerful, and pleasing to the eye, they were the last hurrah of steam power before diesels sent them to the scrap heap. The final three J's, built in 1950 in the N&W's own shops in Roanoke, VA, were the last steam passenger engines built for an American railroad. They sped across the Appalachian Mountains daily between Norfolk, VA and Cincinnati, OH, hauling passenger trains that included the Powhatan Arrow, the Pocahontas and the Cavalier. With authentic Norfolk & Western station announcements and CD-quality steam engine sounds, this set recalls the excitement of luxury passenger travel in the steam era, when locomotive whistles echoed off Virginia and West Virginia mountainsides.

Toy trains can be enjoyed by both children and adults.
The earliest toy trains date from the 19th century and were often made of cast iron. Motorized units running on track soon followed, powered by a steam or clockwork engine. Some of these trains used clever methods to whistle and smoke.

Electric trains followed, with the first appearing in 1897, produced by the U.S. firm Carlisle & Finch. As electricity became more common in the early 20th century, electric trains gained popularity and as time went on, these electric trains grew in sophistication, gaining lighting, the ability to change direction, to emit a whistling sound, to smoke, to remotely couple and uncouple cars and even load and unload cargo. Toy trains from the first half of the 20th century were often made of lithographed tin; later trains were often made mostly of plastic.

Prior to the 1950s, there was little distinction between toy trains and model railroads—model railroads were toys by definition. Pull toys and wind-up trains were marketed towards children, while electric trains were marketed towards teenagers, particularly teenaged boys. It was during the 1950s that the modern emphasis on realism in model railroading started to catch on.

Many modern electric toy trains contain sophisticated electronics that emit digitized sound effects and allow the operator to safely and easily run multiple trains on one loop of track.
