This is a brand new. HO Scale 4-6-6-4 Challenger Steam Locomotive with Factory-Installed DCC & Tsunami Sound in the Rio Grande paint scheme. The locomotive number is 3805 (Item #G97230).
This stunning reproduction of the 4-6-6-4 Challenger is the result of a focused determination to accomplish one thing: create the finest operating miniature representation of the prototype available. To say Athearn has succeeded would be an understatement. Giving life to all the details are authentic sounds that are channeled through a factory installed DCC and soundboard with speakers. The DCC decoder automatically senses what type of power supply is in use (conventional DC or NMRA compliant DCC) and adapts its functions.
The modeler doesn't have to do a thing. The Genesis 4-6-6-4 Challenger includes a history book and instruction book for quick reference. Boiler backhead with printed manual controls.
Individually applied piping, valves, generators, etc. Headlights and number boards with directional light change.Genesis Five pole, skewed armature motor with two flywheels. Pivoting front and rear engines for negotiating 18 radius curves. Current pick-up on all driver and tender wheels. 8-pin connector plug between loco and tender. Minimum Age Recommendation: 14 years.
