Excerpt from 429 documents:
"Welcome to the fascinating miniature world of Roundhouse Products HO Scale STEAM LOCOMOTIVE kits! ... over 40 years of railroading!
STEAM LOCOMOTIVES can be compared with "thoroughbreds", each with its own distinctive personality and work it performs ... take for instance our Hi-Stepping 4-4-2 Atlantics and 2-6-2 Prairies which were designed for passenger work; then we have our Freight haulers, the 4-6-0 Ten Wheelers and the 2-8-0 Consolidations. These "thoroughbreds" were the main stay of our country, from the close of the Civil War up until the late 1950's!"
