Roundhouse 481 SP Harriman 2-8-0 Consolidation Kit w/Flywheel Motor

There is no greater accomplishment, or satisfaction, than in building something yourself. Fortunately, in this era of supplied entertainment, where accomplishment is often measured by how many levels have been completed, vintage locomotive kits from Roundhouse, Mantua and Tyco, like this Roundhouse 481 SP Harriman 2-8-0 Consolidation Kit w/Flywheel Motor, still offer the challenge, and opportunity, to create your own unique model railroading masterpiece. You will find no greater selection of these great kits from a bygone era than here at MRRHQ's Vintage Model Steam Locomotive Works.

Excerpt from 481 documents:

"Roundhouse has recreated in HO Scale, the original Baldwin Harriman wagon-top style consolidation of the early 1900's. This style is an out-growth of the original smaller consolidation locomotive, with a much larger configuration and wheel diameter capable of handling long strings of freight cars.

The model consolidation is especially adept handling both freight and passenger trains of 20-30 cars depending on make and weight. The model was designed to operate on 18" curves. The special 4-1 gearing makes this kit an outstanding engine for all of your freight or main line chores."

You WILL NOT find a finer example of this great classic kit.
