Friday, September 28th, 2012

Fresh from the builder, American Locomotive Company in Schenectady, New York, Union Pacific Challenger No. 3983 (Lionel Trains Lionmaster 6-28077) races the Chesapeake and Ohio’s crack train, the George Washington, led by Kanawha (Berkshire) locomotive no. 2744 (MTH Electric Trains no. 30-1128-0) in the northeast corridor between Trenton and Newark. The time is August 1943 and the Challenger is runs away with a 27 car freight train en route to its delivery to the Union Pacific Railroad in Omaha. Soon, the Challenger, too, will be assigned to passenger service. The C&O Kanawha is replacement power for Hudson type locomotives that are in servicing and is leading a mix of older Pullman heavyweights and newer streamlined cars.
