Long live the ROCK!!
The fun never stops! We are super excited to be releasing this engine! This particular locomotive has a fascinating history. Today it is currently cosmetically preserved and on display in Peoria, IL. at the "Wheels O'Time Museum" courtesy of the Rock Island Technical Society.
Acquired by the society in 1984, it has been lovingly looked after by its members. This engine is one of only three Rock Island steam locomotives still around.
From the Rock Island Technical Society website on #886; "The last Rock Island steam-powered train to leave Peoria was hauled by #886, which the railroad agreed to donate to the city, but it was discovered too late that the engine had already been scrapped. The railroad still had an identical engine, #887, which they simply repainted as #886."
Our version, with the help of MTH, will have a finished look as delivered by ALCo to the Rock in 1909. We have requested that this engine come with the long tender, instead of the short one, as we have offered with the Q's engine.
Equipped with all the PS 3.0 features you are accustomed to. Smoke out the top, wheels on the bottom, goes "ding-ding" and "woo-woo". Price $1250.
The above picture is in our collection. We purchased this picture from the bay. It was part of a larger selection from the Roger Graham Collection of Stillwater, MN.
