MTH RailKing 30-1571-1: Jersey Central 0-6-0 B-6 Switcher Steam Engine

 

Switch engines are an essential, specialized piece of railroad equipment that look quite different from their kin that work the mainline. Because of the nature of their work, moving cars around railroad yards, switch engines spent much of their time waiting for their assignments. That means steam switchers needed smaller fireboxes, boilers, and tanks than road engines. The cut out or sloping tanks on most steam switchers were designed to give good rear visibility, which was essential for these small and agile engines that needed to slip into tight spaces where other engines could not fit. The 0-6-0 switcher would typically have been assigned to move about six cars at a time.

The rugged RailKing 0-6-0 is perfect for working the yard of any early twentieth-century layout. This sturdy model comes in the markings of the Pennsylvania, Long Island, Baltimore & Ohio, and Jersey Central railroads.

Did You Know? Steam switchers almost always had front and rear sand boxes, though the rear one was sometimes hidden inside the cab rather than appearing as a prominent dome.
