IHC Premier M820 Delaware, Lackawanna & Western "Modern" American 4-4-0 Locomotive #987 HO Scale
IHC Premier M820 Delaware, Lackawanna & Western "Modern" American 4-4-0 Locomotive #987
A natural evolution of the original 4-4-0 American "General" style locomotive, this 4-4-0 "Modern" American locomotive itself evolved into the hard working 2-6-0 Mogul and the magnificent and fast 4-4-2 Atlantic. In terms of total number of years in service, the long and distinguished career of the American 4-4-0 class of steam locomotive was surpassed by no other single locomotive type. This MRRHQ Collectible HO Scale IHC Premier M803 Southern "Modern" American 4-4-0 Locomotive represents a locomotive that could have seen service from 1870-1920 with many still in use as late as 1950. Well suited as a fast passenger locomotive the "Modern" 4-4-0 American would have been seen at the head of many Railroad's crack Limiteds.
The DL&W did roster 69 4-4-0s including #967. Of course all 69 were Camelbacks, not Modern Americans of which they had none. IHC's propensity for frivolous naming/numbering aside, a well made, great looking and great running locomotive.
