Description

Steam locomotive asociated with the Erie Railroad in the United States. Early American locomotives were either direct orders from British firms or adaptations from British prototypes. However, by 1875, more American designs were being made and the locomotive shown in this model (scale 1:8) is typical of the time. The tender is carried on two four-wheeled bogies and the engine is enclosed. A cow-catcher is attached to the buffer beam and a large bell and headlamp on the boiler warn pedestrians of the approaching locomotive.
