As Big As They Come

In November of 2003, MTH released a Protosound 2 version of their Premier model of the C&O Allegheny, a hulking 2-6-6-6 articulated behemoth.  This locomotive was the tallest, widest, heaviest, and most powerful steam locomotive ever produced and was used in heavy coal service in the Allegheny mountains.  As you can see in this True HD 1080p video, the detailing of the model is superb and the sound is great.  Before anyone asks, I've been assured that the weird whistle is entirely prototypical and comes from recordings of the real thing.
