LGB 29000 Golden Spike Steam Locomotive Set
Exclusive one-time limited edition in 2019 on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad in the USA - worldwide limited to 299 pieces. When the first American railroads went into operation, the Americans could already imagine a transcontinental connection by train. This idea soon won more and more adherents. At the start of the American Civil War in 1861, there were already 31,000 miles / 50,000 kilometers of lines in the eastern states – more than in Europe at that time. Only a very small part were located west of the Missouri. A railroad line bridging the continent promised many advantages, such as an expansion of trade, a shortening of the travel time for immigrants, and support for the army in keeping enemy Indians under control. In 1862, Congress therefore approved construction of a transcontinental railroad connection.

LGB 29000 Golden Spike Steam Locomotive Set
Exclusive one-time limited edition in 2019 on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad in the USA - worldwide limited to 299 pieces.
Model: This is a set consisting of two steam locomotives as they looked at the opening of the first transcontinental railroad in the USA. The construction, paint schemes, and lettering are the same as the two replicas - Union Pacific RR locomotive "119" and the Central Pacific RR "Jupiter" locomotive as they presently are at the memorial site at Promontory Summit in Utah. These are finely detailed models with heavy metal construction including many separately applied details. Each locomotive is driven by a powerful motor, has an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions such as headlights, cab lighting, firebox lights, and much more. The running sounds and a whistle and bell activated by reed switches will also work in analog operation. Each locomotive has a built-in smoke unit with steam exhaust synchronized with the wheels as well as cylinder steam and steam exhaust at the whistle, when the latter is activated. The cab doors and smoke box doors can be opened. There is a detailed working link & pin coupler on the tender and the cowcatcher on the front has a separately applied, movable drawbar. The running gear mounted inboard on the locomotive frame is fully modelled and moves. The coupling between each locomotive and its tender can be adjusted for two lengths. Length over the couplers for locomotive "119" 55 cm / 21-5/8", for "Jupiter" locomotive 52 cm / 20-1/2". A reproduction of an American track spike – constructed of metal and genuine gold-plated – is included with the models. In addition, there is also a flagstaff to go on the locomotives and it includes an American flag. The locomotives are packaged in a quality wooden case. Figures of locomotive engineers and firemen as well as LGB standard couplers and American knuckle couplers are also included.
