400E Tinplate Steam Engine w/Proto-Sound 3.0 – Black w/Brass

Product Number: 11-1024-1

The 400E is the most popular and most sought after of the original pre-war tinplate engines. The largest of the Standard Gauge tinplate steamers, this engine was introduced in 1931 and was an immediate sensation. The 400E is best known for pulling the Blue Comet passenger set, but it is also one of only two steamers to pull the large 200-series freight cars, which gives you extra flexibility on your railroad.
