The Pennsylvania Atlantic

In late 2000, MTH released their Premier line model of a Pennsylvania RR E6 Atlantic (4-4-2) steam locomotive.  This was, AFAIK, the very first locomotive released with the then-new Protosound 2 electronics.  This incorporated synchronized smoke puffing with the sound of the steam chuffing as well as an impressive panoply of sound and locomotive controls.  It also incorporated DCS remote control, though that system wouldn't appear for quite a time yet.  For a 10 year old model, it still looks quite good, though modern models have somewhat more detail, it runs well, and it sounds good too as you can see in this True HD 1080p video.
