"Well, I must say, they have everything!" Such were the remarks of B&O's President White upon inspecting the first EM-1. Despite a preference for diesels, the B&O was allocated the new steam locomotives by the Wartime Production Board. They would be the last and largest steam locomotives delivered to the B&O and many argued they were among the best. Equipped with all of the most advanced features available for the time, the powerful locomotives were designed to make use of every inch of space allotted by the B&O's tight clearance restrictions. Although they were built for drag freight operations on the B&O's mountain routes in southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the locomotives found their way into a variety of roles before retirements in 1957 including some mail and express and passenger excursions. Smaller than their older 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone cousins in the west due to tight tunnel and bridge clearances, the EM-1 was no less impressive. Crews respected them for their power, efficiency and especially smooth ride. Ultimately, their reign on the mountains would be brief - snuffed out by the diesels the B&O always wanted. Like the prototype, these Lionel models have everything you could want! Equipped with both LEGACY and Bluetooth, they are easy to control from your LEGACY or TMCC cab, Universal Remote, LionChief App or transformer. Dual speakers make great use of LEGACY RailSounds and the model is equipped with stack and whistle steam effects. Control switches are all conveniently located under the sand dome. For this release, Lionel has added some "what if" schemes to this good looking locomotive. The EM-1's roles in mail and excursion service led us to imagine what one may have looked like in proper B&O dress blue. DM&IR and Northern Pacific both rostered larger 2-8-8-4s. We've added front air pump details and centipede tenders where appropriate to better capture the look of those machines. Several of the DM&IR locomotives were leased to the Rio Grande - making for a very plausible green-boilered 2-8-8-4. Lastly, Union Pacific's love of big steam and Western Maryland's parallel route through the mountains made the EM-1 design a natural "should have been" for these roads as well.
