LGB 23252 Columbus® Forney Steam Loco, w/Sound, Collection Item

Forney locomotives were popular on American short lines during the late 19th century. The twin-axle truck under the cab made them run smoothly. Their special ability to run in reverse simplified operations and eliminated the need for turntables or wyes. In fact, Forneys are still in use at theme parks and tourist railways. This LGB model features a twin-axle drivetrain with a front, leading axle as well as the traditional rear, trailing truck. Plus, the model features the high-gloss finish of a beautifully restored loco. But the digital sound of this LGB loco is even more impressive than the sight. As the loco starts, you can hear the whooshing of the steam as it leaves the cylinders. The whistle sounds twice, and the loco starts moving with slow, powerful exhaust chuffs. Hear it and you´ll be hooked! The Prototype Forney locomotives were popular in North America during the late 19th century. The truck under the cab and fuel bunker made these locos run smoothly, and for short lines, the Forney's ability to run in reverse as well as forward simplified operations and eliminated the need for turntables. A few Forneys are still in use, including the prototype for this model, which carries tourists at a theme park.
