This is the HO Scale Class A 2-6-6-4 w/Sound & DCC - Paragon2 - Norfolk & Western #1218 (black) from Broadway Limited Imports.
According to the men who knew and operated them, the N&W Class As were the finest steam engines ever built. Four groups were erected between 1936 and 1950, with some improvements in each group - our models will be patterned after two groups. A group of 25 locomotives which were built in 1943 and 1944. The group was numbered from #1210 to #1234 and #1218 is the lone survivor today. We are offering another group numbered #1237, 1238 & 1239. These are equipped with roller bearing side rods and are offered in an unlettered version as well.
The Class A is currently preserved in the Virginia Transportation Museum in Roanoke, VA
