K-LINE continued the Titan Series with the die cast Allegheny steamers. This series of engines features Korean built locos with loads of details that have been proportionally scaled down to run on O-31 curves. These are large engines designed for the railroader with a traditional-sized layout. This Allegheny is available in Chesapeake & Ohio in a command version. The command version features TrainMaster Command Control, Lionel RailSounds with Crew Talk and TowerCom and an Electrocoupler on the rear of the tender.

In the early 1940s, the Chesapeake & Ohio needed new power on its Allegheny Division to move coal trains over the 2,072 foot summit of an Allegheny mountain. Lima Locomotive Works designed a six-coupled, single-expansion articulated with 67' diameter drivers for speed, a 9' x 15' firebox with a very large boiler for steaming and 778,000 pounds of locomotive weight. The C&O placed an order for ten of these 2-6-6-6 locomotives and Lima delivered them in December, 1941. The C&O selected the name Allegheny for the mountain range where this new locomotive would do its work. C&O eventually purchased another 50 of these workhorse engines.
