The Great Northern

This is another unusual video.  It shows the MTH Premier Great Northern (GN) S-2 Northern-type (4-8-4) steam locomotive pulling a large consist of 36' woodsided reefers.  That's quite a load, and the S-2 runs out of oomph.  It calls for help, and the MTH Premier GN R-2, a 2-8-8-2 articulated behemoth, answers the call.  It backs out of the ready yard onto the mainline, couples to the back of the train, and together the S-2 and the R-2 get it up to speed and on the way to its destination.  As you'll see in this True HD 1080p video, the S-2 and the R-2 work splendidly together in lash-up using DCS, combining to move the train with no trouble at all.  The detail and operation of both locomotives is superb!
