|4-4-2 Atlantic Steam Locomotives|
The photo of model shown above is the MTH Premier version of the Pennsy 4-4-2 Atlantic, which was one of the early workhorses of the steam era. This model, released late in 2000, included the new Protosound 2 system, which provides smoke puffing synchronized with the driver movement. In practice, it adds greatly to the realism of the model. A few more photos of the model are shown below, and following those is a photo of a later model Pennsy Atlantic prototype.
Shown below are a few earlier Jersey Central camelback versions of the Atlantic.
Here are few photos of an early Pennsy Atlantic, #7002, class E-2, preserved in the Railroad Museum of PA.
Here's a later Atlantic, class E-6, also preserved at the museum.
