The 2-8-0 steam engine was first developed in 1864-1865 to provide power for heavy trains running at moderate speeds, especially on steep grades. Alexander Mitchell, the chief mechanic for the Lehigh and Maloney Railroad, an eastern Pennsylvania coal hauler, designed the original 2-8-0. The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) was the first to put the 2-8-0 type engine on the rails when they rebuilt a Baldwin flexible-beam engine to a 2-8-0 configuration. For more than forty years, the 2-8-0 Consolidation was America's standard freight locomotive, working hard on virtually every railroad.


Produced in near-scale proportions, the MTH 2-8-0 steam locomotive may be lower-priced but it's still equipped with the same high quality components and features found in more expensive MTH steam locomotives.


Featuring a die-cast metal locomotive boiler and chassis and durable ABS tender, each 2-8-0 is equipped with the state-of-the-art Proto-Sound 2 system for an incredible operating experience. No other manufacturer gives you a locomotive with speed control, synchronized puffing smoke, remotely controlled Proto-Couplers or high quality digital sound at this low of a price. You'll be amazed at how slowly and smoothly she runs - up and down grades and around corners with or without a load. And When you see her smoke, with each puff timed to the revolutions of the drivers, you'll know that you've just obtained the best value in model railroading.
