Bachmann Item #64209: HO ALCo RS-3 with DCC, RI #493
Introduced in 1950, this all-purpose 1600-HP locomotive had the stamina and strength for freight and passenger service yet was agile enough for yard service work. With its rugged, dependable design, it’s no wonder that many of these versatile RS-3 locomotives are still working today on short lines, tourist lines, and hauling freight.
