Vision 2-10-10-2

The beast is back! One of Lionel's initial VISION offerings, Santa Fe's 2-10-10-2 has returned after more than a decade. Upgraded with today's LEGACY and Bluetooth control, this run includes the addition of safety valve steam and our selectable whistle sets for even more fun and value. 

Santa Fe built 10 of these monsters in 1911 from existing 2-10-2 locomotives with new front engines supplied by Baldwin. At their time, they were the largest locomotives in the world. One locomotive, 3001, even made a silent film appearance in 1915. Despite success with previous smaller conversions of 2-6-6-2 locomotives, the 3000s' boilers simply couldn't produce enough steam at speed to supply the four pistons. By 1918, the locomotives were back to simple 2-10-2s again. The distinctive "turtleback" tenders would serve other locomotives until the end of steam.

Unique models like this don't come down the tracks often. Loaded with stack, whistle, and blowdown steam effects, a swinging bell, loads of detail and both LEGACY and Bluetooth control, we've made a great model even better. In addition to two prototypical numbers, we've also added two fun fantasy schemes for those who like a little more color on their steam engines.
