Mantua 396-064 C&NW E6 4-4-2 Atlantic Locomotive HO Scale

It was a Pennsylvania Railroad Atlantic that led the way on the world's fastest railroad run on June 12, 1905, reaching a record breaking speed of 127.1 mph across the Ohio landscape. It was, however, another Pennsy E6 4-4-2 that would become the most famous of all and give the E6 Class the name "Atlantic". Click HERE for a fascinating look at survivor Pennsy E6 #460, the "Lindberg Special".

Mantua handsomely re-created the remarkable Atlantic with authentic features which include a Stephenson valve gear, Belpaire firebox, 80" spoke drivers, full size ash pan and illuminated marker and reversing lamps. With elegant proportions, stately drivers, massive boiler and large trailing truck, the Atlantic was one of the most beautiful locomotives to fly across the rails.

First introduced in 1986, the 4-4-2 graced the Mantua catalog until 1989. After a five year hiatus, the C&NW road name reappeared with the upgraded Sagami MC94 motor for only two years in 1994 and 1995. It remains one of the most remarkable model locomotives ever produced and was one of the last and finest generation of Mantua Pacifics.
