Background On The Powerful  N&W Class A

According to the men who knew and operated them, the N&W Class A’s were the finest steam engines ever built. Four groups were erected between 1936 and 1950, with some improvements in each group – our models will be patterned after two groups. A group of 25 locomotives which were built in 1943 and 1944. The group was numbered from #1210 to #1234 and #1218 is the lone survivor today. We are also offering models of a modification made to a few of the Class As. In this production, we are offering #1238, #1240, and #1242.

Class A #1218 is currently preserved in the Virginia Transportation Museum in Roanoke, VA.
